    I bought one of these and disassembled it. It had the backlit chicklit keyboard in it. Same part number as the one for the cf 29. Some of these came with the standard style keyboard, but it is backlit. Sort of a gamble as to which you would get, but they are all backlit as far as I know.
    They also made a CF-VKBL02 and I think there is a CF-VKBL03( brain is foggy, haven't slept well lately). One of those numbers is the rubber keyboard.

    The CF-VKBL02 and CF-VKBL03 are backlit chiclet.

    Also, none of these have the icons on the F keys or the red F11 key.

    deere245: so all I would have to do is tear this down and the keyboard will swap directly into my CF-29? No mods needed?
    Thanks

    Great post deere245

    It has been thought that the keyboard might be interchangeable , but none have tried, mostly as the prices for the keyboard were quite high

    The link to this thread is now added to the first page of the CF-29 FAQ thread

    Appropriately named

    CHEAP BACKLITE KEYBOARD MOD

    That's what I did. It even had the same part number as the cf 29 keyboard.
    Like I said though, These are not all the chicklit style. Some look like a standard keyboard, but are backlit. That type was only officially used in the remote keyboard. Notice his photo.
