I third this.  It's the smallest keyboard I've seen that has full-size
keys in a sane layout.  I miss some of the keys a bit, e.g. PgUp/PgDn,
and the Fn-Up/Down alternative doesn't work on a N800.

I also admit that I cannot figure out how to turn it off.  The power
button always turns it on.  When I want to use the virtual keyboard, I
have to disconnect the Apple one from the Nokia's Bluetooth statusbar

FWIW connecting the two back together is unexpecedly easy: just start
typing and the keyboard will reconnect *without losing any of the
keystrokes*.  Brilliant.
