Default bluetooth keyboard

Howdy all.
Did some looking around and I discovered the i500 was compatable with bluetooth keyboards and got the novel idea this would be a great addition to my collection.
My issue: Purchased a Targus BT keyboard and when i try to pair the two i get the following error message.
** Sorry, but HID device not supported on this phone **

THere are countless reports of users getting keyboards to work with the i500. did I just get a bad keyboard or is it the fact i am only running EH09?
any help would be appreciated

thanks in advance
