i just got me the officiall German Acer Iconia A500 BT Keyboard (70 Euros!) hoping it would be recognized correctly after updating to 3.1 - but i got disppointed. there is still no support for a german key layout and special characters (ßüöä).

is this a Honeycomb problem or was Acer too lazy? and did anyone here manage to make it work with an app or a workaround?

thanks in advance!

That is the reason, I did not buy any keyboard. I use Android 4.2.1 and still no support for german special characters!

I'm using External Keyboard Helper Pro from play. And it works great.

I'm using the same app, so I can't try, but most QWERTZ keyboards (Logitech, Rapoo, Perixx..) seem to switch layouts when pressing STRG+SPACE. Give it a try and report back.
