    Here's my post on my tested BT peripherals from XDA:

    DEVICE TYPE: Mouse
    DEVICE MODEL NUMBER AND NAME: Logitech Mx1000 Laser
    PAIRS: Yes
    CONNECTS: Yes
    RANGE: 6-12 inches
    FUNTIONALITY: Works well, most of the buttons are mapped to a useful function. Left click is what you'd expect, right click is 'back'. The back button on the mouse is the 'home' button, and the forward button on the mouse selects whatever's highlighted. Scroll wheel works as expected, sort of... Left-clicking on the screen and moving the cursor can be used to activate gestures.
    LIMITATIONS AND BUGS: Distance and interference increases pointer lag
    WORKAROUNDS: None
    REQUIRED APPS: CM7.1 RC
    COMPATIBLE APPS: everything, Cm7.1 displays a traditional mouse pointer immediately after link.
    CM7 version: found the feature in CM7 Nightly 93 and use it now in 7.1 RC.
    KERNEL: Default CM7 kernel, Dalingrin's 6/9 6/13 6/18 6/30 kernels

    DEVICE TYPE: Keyboard
    DEVICE MODEL NUMBER AND NAME: Logitech Mx5000
    PAIRS: Yes
    CONNECTS: Yes
    RANGE: 1-2 feet
    FUNTIONALITY: Works well,great for typing comfortably with Nook on a stand.
    LIMITATIONS AND BUGS: keyboard has many features that are obviously not supported.
    WORKAROUNDS: None
    REQUIRED APPS: CM7.1 RC
    COMPATIBLE APPS: everything with text input
    CM7 version: found the feature in CM7 Nightly 93 and use it now in 7.1 RC.
    KERNEL: Default CM7 kernel, Dalingrin's 6/9 6/13 6/18 6/30 kernels

    DEVICE TYPE: Cell Phone
    DEVICE MODEL NUMBER AND NAME: LG Optimus M
    PAIRS: Yes
    CONNECTS: No
    RANGE: Unknown
    FUNTIONALITY: Unknown
    LIMITATIONS AND BUGS: Doesn't seem to detect any supported BT profiles, haven't tried tethering with 3rd party apps, or sending files through a file manager.
    WORKAROUNDS: None
    REQUIRED APPS: Unknown
    COMPATIBLE APPS: Unknown

    Anybody know if you can use your android phone as a keyboard and mouse with the NC? I know they have apps on the market that will let you do this with a computer but i have yet to see anything thats lets you control your tablet from your phone.
