    You can download "wifi keyboard" app from the market. If your phone and your computer is connected to the same wifi/wired internet then you can type directly on the computer's keyboard and the text/typing will show up on the phone.

    If both the computer and the phone are not on the same network but are both connected to the internet (the phone through 3g the computer through other means) then you can connect too. You just use the phone's unique ip address to connect. But this way there is a bit of a time lag between the typing and it showing up on the phone's screen.

    Failing that if you have wireless tethering from your phone you can have you wifi computer connect to the phone's data connection and you can type through there.

    Long story short. Wifi keyboard is the solution that you're looking for. It is very easily setup and once the input method is set to wifi keyboard there is a notification on your stat bar that tells you what ip address and port to connect to. You can use any browser to point to that location ...

    Yes I just download ""wifi keyboard" today and I love it. I wish there was a more portable solution but it is great. Just what the android doctor ordered.
