Re: Bluetooth Incompatibility with 4.3 Body Count
You might start with this article:
Google started a Nexus 7 Support Site:
Here's the thread on Bluetooth problems:
After reading many reports, Paul from Google had the following response on 8/19: "Thanks for the feedback about Bluetooth keyboard compatibility with your new Nexus 7 tablets. We're looking into it." Nothing from Paul since.
About half of the keyboards don't connect at all while the other half suffer repeated keystrokes, gibberish, non-functional with wireless etc. Choose your favorite incompatibility:

Google is telling people to buy BT 3.0 compliant keyboards but you should note that several BT 3.0 keyboards don't work with 4.3.
As for other options, I wouldn't believe that any BT devices are compatible with 4.3 unless I see it for my own eyes or have someone I trust verify.
On that note, I got a Perixx 804 Bluetooth Keyboard today and confirm that it works with the Nexus 7 2012 and Nexus 7 2013 running 4.3. It pairs, types without repeated keystrokes, works with wifi 2.4 and 5.0 etc.
Perixx PERIBOARD-804, Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard - Black - 10x5" Portable Size - Ultrathin 1/4" Design - Compatible with Android & Windows OS - Silent X Type Scissor Keys - On/Off Switch - US English Layout $26.99
It's thin and light but not foldable. It works which makes it a rare-bird indeed.
An old Zen Koan: If Google says they're looking into it, is there anyone in the forest?
