And, I've ordered a USB keyboard from China on eBay that is supported by some Android tablets and phones. When it arrives I may find that I need to download and experiment with some "remote keyboard" apps in order to get Cruz to recognize it.
I mainly want to use this as a reader for the thousands of pdf docs and books I have on my hard drive and as a portable writing machine -- via a full-size portable keyboard. Don't know yet whether it is going to work well for either.
The pdf reader that comes with the Cruz doesn't reflow all docs well. Some, even in landscape mode, require scrolling from left to right on each line in order to read. That's not good. And there is no highlighting or annotating or bookmarking function for pdfs.
Any help with accessing Android apps WITHOUT access to Market -- or a simple hack that gives access to the Android Market -- is highly appreciated.
