Current version supports input using on screen keyboard. You can also use Bluetooth keyboards and with (battery) powered USB hub can also use USB keyboards.

Near computer can also use networking over Bluetooth or USB and then ssh into device or run X11 programs remotely and thus use whatever input possibilities other computer supports.

For further predictive text input information see: Predictive text wikipedia

Interesting hardware input devices
  • Credit-card sized bluetooth keyboard (Note: apparently supports only Bluetooth Serial Port Profile and not HID; supportable, of course, perhaps using existing user space daemon kbdd)
  • Bluetooth laser virtual keyboard
  • Frogpad
  • Freedom Mini, apparently not manufactured anymore but still sold and works out of the box with Bluez' hidd. Has a spring-loaded hinge for squeezing a phone/PDA against the keyboard; seems like a Neo could attach nicely but don't have one to actually test. --Mjr 10:30, 15 May 2007 (CEST)
