Thumbs up microsoft intellimouse explorer for bluetooth

I'm trying to connect the microsoft intellimouse explorer for bluetooth to the xoom.
Unfortunately the xoom BT requires a passkey to be entered to pair the device.
The Microsoft mouse is not using a passkey to pair.

What am I doing wrong?
Any workaround for this?

i have tried to enter 0000 or 1234 but did no pair.

Please HELP

I too have one of these guys, if we're talking about the same one its the very first BT mouse that MS made, soft touch blue with a silver dongle stand and a matching blue dongle? I read somewhere that it came out before HID profile was finalized so it relied on intellipoint to tell the dongle to initiate the pairing process. Mac guys had problems with pairing until they updated the software to include the mouse so i'm inclined to believe that explaination. If the device doesn't have the ability to pair without using a passkey, theres no way to pair the mouse as it has no passkey in it. I've tried the usual keys on my transformer as well as TP with cm9 and 2 evos all to no avail.

Hey! Just found a solution!!!
Worked on my Samsung N7000 and BT Genius mouse:
1.Install app and open it
2.Make BT devices search and find your mouse
3.Push single button on the top of application screen
4.Little message apperes below like "ChineseSymbols!"
5.Turn your BT off and on
6. Take a look at you paired BT devices
7. PROFIT!!!

I can confirm it works on my Samsung Galaxy S3. Btw, the app is in Japanese not Chinese. After you clicked on the mouse in the app to pair it you will need to go to the settings of the mouse and use it as a pointer.
