    i know this is has been asked for other phones, but has anyone specifically got a bluetooth keyboard and/or mouse working with the SGS2? And while using the HDMI out feature? i.e, to be able to plug the phone into the TV, sit back and go on the internet, stream movies etc without having to get up.

    As far as I'm aware you shouldnt have a problem with most bluetooth keyboards (not sure about mouse's though have seen some working)

    And yes they will work whilst using HDMI out. Check youtube ;)

    NZTechfreak has. No doubt he will pop up and point you to one of his very informative videos when the time difference allows.

    However, I have connected a bluetooth keyboard and mouse to my phone and they worked perfectly. It was trivially easy.

    My MHL cable is in the post so by tomorrow, I am hoping that I shall be able to say yes I have.

    What I'd really like to be able to do is to run Ubuntu on my phone (I'm in the middle of installing a chrooted version) and to display this on an external monitor with a BT keyboard and mouse. This won't be a great experience unless I can somehow persuade the SGS2 to up the resolution from 800*480. I don't believe that will be easy but we shall see.

    I'm doing a video to show this in the next day or so, will be up at the Clove Youtube channel and blog.

    Works great, I use it quite a bit.

    Any bluetooth keyboard and mouse that support the bluetooth HID profile (should be basically all of them really) should work fine.

    You mean you can use a bluetooth mouse and keyboard simuteanously?
    Cause usb is already used for hdmi output so i cannot attach a usb keyboard.
    Thanks in advance.
