The slider on the upper right of the keyboard releases the "pen"; the slider on the upper left is the on/off switch. On the left side is a slot for a CF Card, a RS232 port, and the battery. On the right side is the slot storing the "pen", the power connection, the PC Card slot and its release button. There is a microphone on the right side of the keyboard next to the shift key. The bottom has a docking connector, loudspeaker, and lithium battery door.
