I asked about BT keyboards a while back and someone recommended one they 
said was quite good.  I haven't been able to buy it yet, but search the 
archives for posts with keyboard in their subject and you should find 
their recommendation.

For me, a good BT keyboard would be fantastic, since I'm a writer (but 
acting as a programmer with the business I have right now).  As a teen 
and in college, before I got a word processor, I loved being able to 
take off on my bike and find a secluded place so I could sit and write.  
Once I started using a word processor, I stopped that because anything 
I wrote by hand I'd have to type into the computer.  I had a Palm 
Pilot, but could not find a good useable keyboard for it.  A useable 
keyboard will finally let me do what I haven't done since the 1980s.
