    I was hoping to start a thread to ask users about bluetooth keyboards that they've confirmed to use with their Android phone --- Particularly, I can't find any info regarding the DROID Eris --- But it'd be nice to see what options are around in general.


    Is anyone successfully using a bluetooth (or USB?!) keyboard with their phone? Impressions?

    Thanks!

    I think I've used his drivers unsuccessfully trying to pair a Freedom Pro keyboard with the Eris (Outlined Here)

    Android phones don't work with bluetooth or USB keyboards.

    Incorrect.
    Some do, some don't. All depends on what BT drivers are installed.
    The Dell Streak has BT keyboard support as standard.
    There are apps in the market that might enable your BT keyboard to work, although all have been unsuccessful for me so far.

    I have an old Palm BT keyboard. I've been told that it doesn't work with my Vibrant. The Blueinput driver can't see it even though it does pair with the phone.

    I have seen success stories about the Freedom models.
