    Seriously?

    Why the hell can you easily use a bluetooth wiimote controller with android but there isn't a single good option for using a bluetooth keyboard?! :mad:

    The Dell Streak with Android 1.6 has it (Dell Streak supports Bluetooth keyboards)... WHY DOESN'T OTHER ANDROID DEVICES?! :mad:

    Does anyone have any advice or knowledge on this? :thinking:

    (Btw I'm talking about BOTH SPP and HID bluetooth keyboard support)

    CyanogenMod 6 integrates bluetooth input devices. Keyboards, mice, whatever. Yeah, sorry if you aren't rooted.

    I have a FreedomPro bluetooth keyboard that works with my Nexus One. Maybe it just depends what keyboard you are using? Before they made there own driver, I was using the one in the market called BlueInput.

    I also saw a dude who had written some drivers for logitech bluetooth keyboards. He demonstrated them on N1 in a youtube vid.

    I don't need this functionality but I'm sure it's out there if you just search a little.

    Thanks Teknologic for the response :)

    I ended up trading an old iPhone 3gs for a HTC HD2 on Craigslist and it works perfect with my Palm bluetooth keyboard! :)

    (I also have Froyo running perfect on my HD2 as well! ;))

    Mmmmmmmmm HD2 with Froyo Android working perfect = Epic Win for me :D:D:D
