Default Bluetooth Keyboard & mouse for Samsung galaxy note 2

Hi

I have a galaxy note 2 and am thrilled with it!. I have been using a chunky Bluetooth keyboard and mouse,usually used on my PC. You have to plug a Bluetooth receiver into the phone via a usb adapter which is annoying!

Can anyone recommend a small/slim keyboard and mouse combo that connect directly through the phones Bluetooth?

I have seen a number of nice, small Bluetooth tablet keyboards (Microsoft/logitech) but haven't yet found one which includes a mouse.

If I was to buy a separate Bluetooth mouse to use with a Bluetooth keyboard, will my phone support connecting to both individual Bluetooth devices at the same time or will I need to buy a specific combo set?

Many Thanks!

Have you tried connecting to your phone with the keyboard/mouse setup you have? For your PC you need the bluetooth USB dongle because your PC doesn't have bluetooth. Not because your keyboard/mouse needs it. I believe they should work with any bluetooth.

I have a Microsoft Bluetooth mouse A500 & a Kensington Bluetooth keyboard that goes between my N2 and 10.1 Note on occasion. Consider those that are capable if multiple pairs if you routinely use it on multiple devices.

I use the Samsung VG-KBD1500 combined keyboard and touch pad for both my SGN2 and an (allegedly) 'Smart' Samsung TV. There are a few videos on YouTube that may be of interest to you eg

(This particular video shows a very small BT keyboard being used (smaller than the 1500) but curiously, it uses a dongle and not the phone's inbuilt BT.)
