bluetooth wirelles keyboard on N95 8GB

As we currently only have one computer with Excel on it, and my girlfriend needs it to get some student’s marks ready for tomorrow’s parents & teacher evening, I’ve been trying to use my phone in a way more befitting a smartphone: do some real work. Answer emails in more than just a few sentences, type part of the document for tomorrow, etc.
I can’t really do that on the numpad, so I connected my Logitech DiNovo keyboard using the wireless keyboard app. It’s pretty cool. All buttons work, except for the Symbian/Taskman/swirly bitton, all keys map perfectly. I can type at proper speed, and the screen really is big enough for most of it.
If you have a smartphone with just a number pad, not a full keyboard, I recommend you try a bluetooth keyboard with it. I think I’ll look around for a small foldable versionfor the future.
