I would highly recommend both of these options for people like me who want to be able to type reports and class notes on their N1. Yeah, its $13 to get the full version but this is a small price to pay in order to not have to lug around my laptop at school.

(I tried KeyPro on the android market with a Freedom Keyboard and didnt have any success where I would type regular speed but it would skip alot of keys I pressed.)
Thanks for that info. i'm giving some thought to trying the Freedom Keyboard Pro (after I get my Android phone...LOL!) with their coming keyboard driver but I'm SOOOO happy to know that BT keyboards are now fully doable with an Android phone! I will definitely use this instead of my laptop at times!

A quick question for you about the Palm 3245ww wireless bluetooth keyboard. I have a htc Hero and the same keyboard but I am hitting a snag when I try to pair them up. I've installed Blueinput, the phone recognizes the keyboard and then asks for a PIN. I've tried 0000 and 1234 and several others but I always get the message that the phone has problems pairing with the keyboard after I enter the PIN. What phone do you use and do you have any idea what the PIN code should be or what else I might try? I like the keyboard a lot and want to keep using it with my Hero if at all possible.

Thanks for your time and help!

I know this thread is old but would like to know if anyone knows if the Palm 3169WW would work. I think it's a much nicer looking keyboard to the 3245ww
Personal preference really but would like to know.

If no one can help I'll purchase it and let you guys know how it works out.

Default Bluetooth Palm 3245WW HID keyboard on Incredible?

@kaotix The 3169WW won't work. It uses infrared which I don't think any Android products have.

@scotthelsel I've got an Incredible and I run into the same thing. It asks for the password. Tried the usual 1234, 0000. But no go. I'd gladly pay for the full version if it actually worked.

Anyone else get an HID BlueTooth keyboard working?

I've seen threads on getting it working on rooted phones, but this is the only thread I've seen that anyone said they've got it working with an app.

I picked up two of these Palm 3245WW keyboards on a Palm clearance sale a while ago for $10 each. Worked great on my Centro. Find it hard to believe that Android doesn't support this out of the box yet. I wonder if this is baked into 2.2 or 3.0?

Part of the problem is the SenseUI. Because of a conflict that was unresolvable before launch, they rolled back the BT on the DInc to 1.6 so that it wouldn't conflict with SenseUI. But as a result, all the MAJOR changes to BT in 2.0 and 2.1 aren't implemented in the Dinc. Very disappointing. That's why I wasn't able to get my Freedon Pro working with it. There's a lot of info on this on other forums and people are pretty upset about it because we were led to believe we had true Eclair 2.1 but that isn't entirely the case. I've heard of several people who've gotten BT keyboards to work with the Moto Droid so I assume that it has to be primarily a sense issue since the problems tend to be on HTC phones.

Can you point me to someone who found a work around? I really want to get my freedom pro keyboard working.

In reference to the bluetooth keyboards not pairing with the phone. I think it is important to remember the BlueInput software will ask for a pin number. You can choose any number you like and then enter the same pin number on the keyboard and hit enter.

When I did this, on a Logitech Y-X5A77 keyboard with BlueInput on a Garminfone. I was able to get it to connect.

I hope this helps.

eemedic, just click the line that says "paired but not connected" and it will try to connect; if your keyboard is turned on it should work.

Default Palm bluetooth keyboard pair code

I found that I could pair my Palm 3245WW Bluetooth keyboard using the serial number on the hinge side of the unit; there is a 12 character series with 4 digits in the middle. Those 4 digits are the pair code for my keyboard:

PKGBXXXXFOGO

The XXXX was input on my LG Optimus T Bluetooth device screen. The two devices paired, but did not connect, so I'm working through that glitch; I'll try BlueInput. But for those looking for a pair code, try your 4 digit series. I hope it works for you. Let me know.

Interestingly, I can pair and connect the keyboard to an Ipod Touch. When doing so, there is a rolling pairing code sent to the Ipod screen. Entering the code on both the keyboard and Ipod it both pairs and connects. This makes entries into NotePad MUCH easier and faster - I copied all from my Palm Treo 700p in less than a hour.

The Apple video looks promising. Anyone know the specifics of pairing, support, etc. or does it work with any Android device?

The HTC HD2 is a Windows Mobile device. I use the AWK with my Nexus One, but it requires Blueinput from Teksoft:

Teksoft - Future Teknology

Works well, but expensive. Not sure it is worth it unless you plan to do a lot of writing on your handheld. However, it is very nice and I love the keyboard.

On the same website you've indicated, there's a Blueinput for Broadcom that works with Windows Mobile. Did you try it?

Try this. Pick any four diget numeric code and enter it on the phone. When the blutooth indicator light on the keyboard stops blinking enter the same code on the keyboard.

I am running 2.3.6 Gingerbread EK18 and BlueInput 2.0 doesn't find any BT devices on my Samsung Replenish. In fact, I tried all the other versions going backwards and got the same thing. Nada.

[QUOTE=mattb5;1126690]@kaotix

Anyone else get an HID BlueTooth keyboard working?

Yes I have.

I have been able to connect my palm 3245ww to a samsung galaxy 3. The phone and keyboard saw each other but continually failed to complete the handshaking process before giving up. No instruction or help screen ever appeared on the phone, such as one asking for a pin. Taking a chance I typed in 4 zeros and ENTER while the keyboard light was flashing and it connected and now works fine. It now always appears as one of the bluetooth choices in settings and connects when selected without any pin re-entering.

It took me a while to remember to hit the ENTER key without being asked.
