Playbook mini keyboard

Hi, does anyone know when/if the playbook mini keyboard and convertable case will be avaliable to purchase in the UK. 

Was gonna purchase one last time they were in stock but they were really expensive (£100+ inc postage) - which is really quite expensive for a case and bluetooth key+mouse.


Has anyone tried the cheaper generic-make playbook mini keyboard & convertable case?




I'd be tempted to get one because I really want a kb&case for my playbook but it looks much thicker than the official one and also lacks the multitouch mouse.

I use a 'generic' Bluetooth KB. Made by Motorola.  It works fine, but I also need to carry a separate mouse (Logitech).  Only the BlackBerry keyboard had a touchpad.  And I think they are all sold out. I have not seen one in Canada for ages. At the time I thought it was too expensive.


Checked out Amazon.com.  They still have some.
