Default Phone for use as an ssh terminal

I'm ready to make the jump from IOS to Android, but am a little bewildered by the variety of phones available.

One of my main uses will be to SSH into a linux box that I administer. Is anything out there working natively with bluetooth keyboards? The reviews I've read of the pay-for-it BlueInput driver are not encouraging.

Take a look at these two links from XDA.

Control Your PC/PS3 With BlueputDroid 1.2.0 | xda-developers

Want to Have True, Unrestricted Access to Your Phone? Read On… | xda-developers

The first is a method to use the phone as a mouse/keyboard for PS3, Computer etc...

The second is complete SSH guide.

Default Exactly, but the opposite

Thanks serpentine.

I'm actually wanting to do exactly the opposite: use a foldable keyboard with my phone, in order to have a portable, wireless ssh terminal to access a remote linux host.

The only two phones that supports bluetooth HID profile natively I know of are Dell Steak and the Galaxy S. Your other option is to root phone and flash a rom that has bluetooth HID baked in.
