    I'm ready to make the jump from IOS to Android, but am a little bewildered by the variety of phones available.

    One of my main uses will be to SSH into a linux box that I administer. Is anything out there working natively with bluetooth keyboards? The reviews I've read of the pay-for-it BlueInput driver are not encouraging.

    Thanks serpentine.

    I'm actually wanting to do exactly the opposite: use a foldable keyboard with my phone, in order to have a portable, wireless ssh terminal to access a remote linux host.

    The only two phones that supports bluetooth HID profile natively I know of are Dell Steak and the Galaxy S. Your other option is to root phone and flash a rom that has bluetooth HID baked in.
