    Has anyone used a wireless desk set i.e. a miuse and keyboard connected via the same receiver.
    I've tried two, a trust and Logitech set, and neither worked.

    I've got a wireless mouse which works with no problem.

    Are you talking about Bluetooth devices? If you are talking about a USB mouse and keyboard, those are made for, and rely on drivers for, Windows. I've heard of someone luckily having one that "just works," but never a set. I myself bought a Bluetooth keyboard and a wired USB mouse, but I ended up taking them both back. I did this as a new user and I really thought about my purchases. I took the mouse back because Android is a touchscreen operating system, so after a bit, I realized it was foolish to have a mouse on a touchscreen. The keyboard was Bluetooth and I took it back because I felt it was akward using it and the Acer Iconia A500. Just my call on both of these, but if you go for a keyboard and mouse still, I'd recommend Bluetooth.

    Walmart Canada dumping case logic USB keyboards for $10. Just plugged it in to my Acer Iconic A500 tablet and it was good to go.
    Black in colour and about the same size as Acer tablet.....nice.

    How wide is the keyboardi; ie is it around the same width as the Iconia? For me, a mouse seems redundant with a touch-screen, but again, that is just me.
