Does anyone know of any packages to interface with the current generation of Blackberry hardware keyboards?

Trying to figure out if it's possible to write an app to take [Blackberry physical keyboard input] and assign it to [android swipe gesture].

Context: The Gmail app on android doesn't support j/k functionality for next/previous. The app supports shortcuts for 'archive', which makes things very fast when used in conjunction with auto-advance. But you can't get to the next message without leaving the keyboard and swiping the screen if you're not archiving the current message. My thought was to assign ctrl-a or some unused ctrl- combination to swipe right and next message.

I searched xda and git and couldn't find anything. I'd be glad to try to implement but I don't know anything about how Blackberry hardware talks to Android (Key2 runs 8.1).

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
