Bluetooth keyboards & Desire HD
I am keen to know the answer to this one. Being able to connect a bluetooth keyboard to my HTC Touch HD (WM 6.1) phone is one of the reasons I still enjoy using it. I hope moving to Android with the DHD does not rule this out.

I spent 30 mins tryinh the Freedom i-connex, and even installing drivers I couldn't get it to work.

To be fair I did just give up as I lost interest, but it's definitely not just a simple quick and easy thing.

Very unlikely to work, HTC has their own BT implementation and its not yet worked on any of their phones (until Cyanogenmod ROM comes anyways).

Samsung Galaxy S does support on 2.2 firmwares, as does the Dell Streak, and every phone with an available Cyanogenmod ROM, if thats a consideration for you.

My Mini bluetooth keyboard http://www.chinavasion.com/product_i...r-smartphones/ from Ebay is on the way, i hope with treksoft Blueinput software http://www.teksoftco.com/index.php?s...tform=2&pid=24 it will be ok with HTC DHD.

So, after a test, it is definitely not working for my DHD (bundled android driver or trial teksoft blueinput for android). So bad :-/ Hope for some useful upgrade in the future...

I asked from HTC Support and:
"Peter, the HTC Desire phone does not come with the Bluetooth HID protocol. There is no method of putting this protocol onto your phone and we cannot guarantee that it will be included in any future updates."

But the HID is working with the Oxygen v2.0 RC4.

Nice regards
Peter

I was not able to plug my apple bluetooth keyboard under the official sense rom on the desire HD.

However, after installing the latest "stable" cyanogen (6.1), bluetooth is working, and I can connect and use the keyboard (it uses the HID profile).
