Curve 8320 4.5 OS upgrade not compatible with Igo Think Outside Stowaway Ultra-slim keyboard?

I have a T-Mobile Blackberry Curve 8320. I upgraded it's system software from Blackberry 4.2 to Blackberry 4.5.0. The new system is great. It allows for streaming media, added a video recorder, nicer cosmetics, and more. The shortcoming, apparently, is that it is not compatible with my Igo Think Outside Stowaway Ultra-slim keyboard. I called Igo today to ask how to get it to work. They said it won't work because the driver was intended for Blackberry 4.2. To add salt to the wound, they are discontinuing their keyboard line, so they won't be updating the driver for the keyboard to be compatible with Blackberry 4.5. I'm pretty bummed, but I don't give up so easily. Do you know how I may be able to get the keyboard to work with the new system software? Your help is most appreciated.

downgrade to 4.2.
or change your mobile device
or buy another keyboard.
