    ok... don't kill me if someone asked this already but i have not found the answer in my searches. Can someone tell me if the new android update allows bluetooth keyboard activity... I want to update but if i cannot get bt keyboard connections i think i will use a different rom.

    What's the word?

    first let me say that this didnt work. :(
    my keyboard is a logitech MX5500
    i think the phone doesn't keep an active connection going like my computers bt does so the keyboard gets confused and goes back into discovery mode.
    probably because the phone doesnt have drivers to use a BT keyboard.
    i really think that a custom rom or kernel could be made that would incorporate some linux based drivers for this, but i really dont know what im talking about when it comes to programming.

    someone might be able to write a "keyboard" app that would keep the bt connection alive just like the wii remote app.

    Thanks for checking it out...but actually I was wondering about the mini bt keyboards. I have a freedom pro that I think would speed up my productivity when I am away from home but I can't get the crap to connect.

    Maybe they have new drivers on the site.....I will check.

    I went to the site and they have new drivers....you must have a phone they actually work on. If you go to otadrivers.com or the freedom pro website....you can get the update. My keyboard still hasn't connected to my Droid...and you are right for the money spent it should work. But it has not worked for me yet
