    Does any vendor make a bluetooth keyboard with built in mousepad that works with most Android tablets and phones? I'm using Samsung Galaxy Notes 10.1 2014 Edition.

    Uh, didn't realize that K400 was full size. I thought it was just like Anker. Btw, it looks like it works with Android: Fun with Android - Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo - YouTube and found more links on-line about people using it with android tv, etc. In a worst case, you order it and then return back if it doesn't work.

    Wow I am so confused. How is he ever getting that wireless receiver to work on the phone side in that demo? Doesn't that require some proprietary driver, which presumably they wrote for Windows only?

    It works exactly the same was as this wireless RF keyboard I reviewed: http://androidforums.com/samsung-ga...ess-80-key-keyboard-air-fly-mouse-w-pics.html

    RF receiver connects to OTG usb cable plugged into your phone and your phone (if it supports OTG usb) will automatically recognize it as peripheral wireless device. It will work the same way with K400.

    I will ping my Logitech PR contact to see if I can get a review sample of K400, though not 100% sure if they even have any samples available for review since this is 3 year old keyboard.

    I purchased K400 as well, and it is working like a champ. I really do NOT like the fact that I have to use a USB adapter for this. I wish they would produce a native bluetooth keyboard/mouse tablet to make a 100% wireless solution for Android.

    Does anyone know how/if there is an application that will map keys on the keyboard to actions on Android? Clearly some of the function keys on K400 do not work or do not map to useful functions.

    Did you get a chance to read my review? http://androidforums.com/android-ac...0-wireless-keyboard-touchpad-w-lots-pics.html - I made a suggestion for some of the Android shortcut keys in there.
