Yes, I believe you can buy just the keyboard.
One word of caution... I suspect Gyration may have a problem with
quality control... I had to send my keyboard in for RMA twice after it
died within a week or two, then died again after they "fixed" it. After
the 2nd RMA they sent me a different unit, which has been working OK for
a few months, though it doesn't get a lot of use. At least one other
person I know of had a similar problem (keyboard died quickly).
Other than that, I like it, though it was a bit expensive. I think
there are cheaper RF keyboards out there.
