My guess is that the kybd will behave just fine. It's easy enough to check quickly.
Now, as to myself...I just switched over to a wireless keyboard (needing batteries). I had a unfamiliarity problem as I was hitting the keys because they have a slightly different physical pitch, depth ...etc..so my fingers don't quite settle on how and where to hit the key. I don't assume this is your problem...just a thought, though.
Just try a text msg.....even without your word processing proggie...and see what happens.
