Dear beloved xda x10 members,

I recently bought an itech wireless bluetooth keyboard but have not had any success in pairing with it. Has anyone had experience with it working that would like to help out?

This is the thing.

thanks to all who reply.

I'm sure I read somewhere that 1.6 does not support Bluetooth HID such as keyboards.

Unless I am mistaken, you should wait a few days until 2.1 is released and try then.

I'm also in Australia. If you're with Optus, update using SEUS. They have 026 as I do..

Except I'm using the UK version which is starting to **** me.

With Telstra, although i debranded from x10a to x10i, the general forums say im on the correct firmware, will try unlocking the phone and using my other sim cards. I didnt really care about android over9000 firmware update until now, want my Hd recording, 16m colors and bluetooth 2.1 HID DAMMNIT.

There is an app for it. There is an app that allows you to connect a BT keyboard to the x10/android 1.6 phone.
I've tried it my self, and it worked. But I normally use it with my computer instead.
I can't quite remember the name. But it was a bit trublesome to use it imo.

But it does work!
All I remember is that I searched for BT HID or something in the Market.

If you want to be able to use enter/space etc.. youl'l need to pay for the app.

what,get 2.1 by Q3 2011?? is that typo, wasn't it Q3 2010??, why it's so long??

My expectations of getting 2.1 are by Q3 2011, we have already been delayed 6months and im still on 014 so by the time its ready for my carrier it wont be til atleast december. i read somewhere that 2.1 would be coming out sometime this week OTA for areas with the majority of SE users.

just a quick sidenote for the ones who are intrigued by lazerz:
never ever consider buying this keyboard.
this is the most useless piece of chinese low-tech i ever owned.
unpacked it, installed it, and sold it 2 days later on ebay.
