Definitely, if the keyboards were still full priced. But new Palm 
Portable keyboards are selling very cheaply on eBay. One person is 
selling shrink wrapped m500 (universal connection) Palm Portable 
keyboards for $2 each (plus $7 s/h) or a lot of 5 keyboards for $5 (plus 
$20 s/h for the lot). New keyboards for the V and Vx PDAs are almost as 
cheap -- and (now) keyboards for the III and m100 series are selling new 
for about $10 on a regular basis and often less (they used to in the $2 
or $3 range).

Even the Palm Ultra-Thin (XT class Stowaway) keyboards can regularly be 
found in the $20 range, especially if you want one for a Clie.
