Bluetooth Keyboards?

2011-11-14, 19:00 PM

Nothing I have seems to connect. No HID profile for the device? Has anyone been able to get one to connect? Precious little information in the manual.

Re: A1 and Bluetooth Keyboards?

2012-05-08, 17:14 PM

Update: Blueinput from Teksoft (teksoftco.com) appears to overcome the missing bluetooth support of the A1, I think it uses its own Android Bluetooth driver. It detected and 'paired' with the Menotek rubber keyboard that I picked up used for $20.

 

The free trial version downloaded from  their website simply inserts a [product demo] string into your notes, in discreet brackets no less, so it would be easy to search-and-replace them. I may end up buying their 'pro' app anyway just because I'm so impressed. I think I saved enough buying this tablet to justify springing for this app

I recently purchased the Verbatim Bluetooth  folding keyboard from Amazon and it paired easily with my K1 and works just fine.

I have paired my logitech dinovo with an A1 and will be trying it with a K1 when it arrives in a day or two.

how, exactly, did you get the BT KB to work? I've tried two of the keyboards so far and it sees them, but won't pair up... although they do pair with my cell phone (2.3.5). I'm flustered with this little issue and it's driving me batty... any help is appreciated..

Re: A1 and Bluetooth Keyboards?

2012-05-07, 16:44 PM

I see that nobody has been able to sucessfully pair an A1 with a bluetooth keyboard.  People who say they have all turn out to have a K1.  Does the K stand for keyboard?  Is the A1 just lacking somehow?  Is there a secret step to pairing that I haven't found yet?

I have a K1 that I use a Logitech BT Keyboard and Logitech BT mouse with with no problems whatsoever.

The mouse does make it much simpler to surf the web due to the scroll wheel and pointer ;)

I think I mentioned that this is an A1 that we're talking about. Other posts establish that the K1 connects to a BT keyboard with no problems. Thanks for your input.

BTW, what settings did you have to change (if any)?
