Very nice. Now I wonder when bluetooth HID capabilities will be added to regular Android phones...

I'm going to try my Logitech Dinovo this evening. It has the mouse pad built in. This would be a perfect marriage if it works.

Combining that with the TV out cable would be fun.

I can't seem to get any bluetooth HID devices to work. Has anyone else been able to get it to work?

SInce I switched over to the T-Mob version now, I will check and see if it will pair and provide HID drivers. It appears the version in the above video is a T-Mob based on the Live Wallpaper.

I paired my T-Mo version with my Microsoft mouse with no issues. I haven't tried a keyboard yet, but that'll happen soon I'm sure.

That's just one more reason i'm glad I switched to T-Mobile. I look forward to trying it out when I get home. I have a DInovo HTPC keyboard with mouse track pad I would love to pair with this.

Success. I was able to pair my Logitech Dinovo with my T-Mobile Tab. Obviously the Logitech lacks the Android specific buttons needed to go home back or menu but once you launch a browser you can control it completely with the Mouse pad and keyboard of the Dinovo. One more reason the T-Mobile rocks over the VZW version.

Default Ideas for VZW Tab users?

Any ideas how to get this to work on VZW? Do we need HID drivers?

I couldn't get my VZW to work. Maybe a firmware update in the future might enable it. It seems only the GSM version has this.

Another Verizon customer and not happy. Why do they insist on messing with the device they release? I have a bluetooth headset charging now. If that won't work this thing is going back. I'll get a T-Mobile version.

I thought they got the message after the Touch Pro fiasco but apparently they have not learned anything except how to get rich quick with half the hardware.

Default CL850 Bluetooth Driver

I discovered an awesome laser projection keyboard that works with Android Phones. It is manufactured by Celluon and is called the CL850. The CL850 Bluetooth Keyboard driver is available on the Android Market for download just in time for the holidays.

Look at all the crap thy jacked up on the Fascinate. They de-googled it as much as they possibly could, disabled (or at least failed to support, or allow samsung to support) video output via 3.5mm jack, and nerfed the internal memory on an otherwise perfect phone (at least as close to perfect as I've ever seen.) Granted, it has a flash, which works suprisingly well for a cellphone, but still. I'm getting closer and closer to switching to T-Mobile all the time, and I have direct influence over at least 21 other lines of service currently with Verizon that close friends and family have. I got most of them to sign up for Verizon in the first place, but T-Mobile has made some serious strides in providing coverage where previously unavailable in rural areas where my family members live. If I tell them to jump to T-Mobile with me and save $40 a month and get the same amount of minutes, they're not gonna say no.

I can't believe ONLY the Verizon version doesn't work with bluetooth keyboards. Do the want to NOT sell?? What the crap is wrong with Verizon or samsung or whoever is messing these perfectly capable devices up? STOP customizing and disabling things. Leave it stock. Make life simpler and better for everyone, including yourselves!!

Are your Tabs rooted? I have a rooted VZW Tab and am very interested in this BT magic.

The Network and3g coverage is the only thing keeping me with VZW. Most of the phones I always wanted were with T-Mobile or AT&T... like the Touch Pro HD and HD2. Verizon's only winners were the Droids including the Incredible which is what I have after leaving the TP2. Verizon knows they have the best network and rape their customers with less hardware or jacked up 3g service rates.

My T-Mobile is rooted but that is not why my bluetooth keyboard works. It worked before I rooted. T-Mobile includes the HID drivers on their Tab. I could pare with the VZW Tab but it would not do anything because of the missing HID drivers.

Can those drivers simply be found and ported over? And what about to other Android phones?

Not sure, but if it could be done, then XDA Developers would be the place. They already have a Rom broken down so i'm sure it would be no problem for them.

My rooted AT&T GT has an Apple BT keyboard and Microsoft BT mouse connected, I am thinking a touch pad would be a better option than the mouse. I might get the little Dinovo to try out. Any feedback on this unit? Can you multi touch to zoom on the pad? Do the fn keys work, like f1 opening the menu like the Apple kb?
