Bluetooth keyboards

Recommended Posts

Be more specific about what type of keyboard you want because it can work with any bluetooth or USB keyboard, So do you want keyboard case, pocket sized keyboard, built in laptop style  touchpad, rollup keyboard or keyboard with backup battery?

Hi,

 

I'm searching a keyboard with touchpad, like Logiteck k400. I'm testing this one on V989, but not recognize. Has anyone another model working?

 

regards

I bought a TeckNet X360 keyboard for the iPad Air and because the v989 had almost similar dimensions it fits rather well. The swivel turns the tablet into a netbook like device and makes working really nice. Sadly, it doesn't have a touchpad so you have to use a Bluetooth mouse if you want to. Connects via Bluetooth and is very moderate on battery consumption. Also, it makes for a nice, sturdy cover because it protects the screen very well when you close it.mYJnE0g.jpg

This is my setup. http://www.amazon.com/TeckNet®-Ultra-Thin-Bluetooth-Keyboard-Rotating/dp/B001AQ3YZQ

Also with German QWERTZ layout for the other German users ;)http://www.amazon.de/Bluetooth-Gehäusehülle-eingebauter-Standrille-Schwenkrotation/dp/B001AQ3YZQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1419075944&sr=8-1&keywords=Tecknet+x360

Dear Kerub!

Many thx for your post!

Can you tell me your overall opinion about this keyboard as I am planning to purchase a similar one, since there is not much offer with QUERTZ layout?!?

One more question: how do you use a mouse with it?! As far as I know mouse is not supported under Android and iOS?!? (I am plan to use with an iPad Air and I have not found any softwares which allows mouses on iOS?!)

Thx once more for your post!

I think it's overall a good keyboard. Keys have a nice pressure point, is not to loud but you definitely get a good feedback while typing. Keys are large enough, comparable to a small laptop, so unless you have huge fingers you should be good. I'm using this keyboard with SwiftKey and it works great. Sadly, some of the special keys lack function on Android but since this keyboard was made for iOS I did expect this. I'd say just order it and try for yourself. It's currently at 18€ and Amazon is very very customer friendly when it comes to returning an article. (probably because they have to in Germany due to the Fernabsatzgesetz :D)

Mouse works great of course, I have both connected via Bluetooth at the same time and experiencing zero problems.

Mouse on iOS is only possible with a jailbroken device as far as I know. At least it was back when I owned an iPad (1st gen...).

I bought the same keyboard but it doesn't recognize that the tablet is set up to german language. Layout is QWERTY but should be QWERTZ.

Any suggestions?

BTW: Many things are still in english language, although it should be german. Any help?

 

Thanks!

Known problem with Android:

 

1. You need root

2. Use a file explorer and navigate to system/user/keychar/Generic.kcm

3. Open it with an Editor

4. Look for:

 

key Y {
    label:                              'Y'
    base:                               'y'
    shift, capslock:                    'Y'
}
 
key Z {
    label:                              'Z'
    base:                               'z'
    shift, capslock:                    'Z'
}
 
and change it to:
 
key Y {
    label:                              'Z'
    base:                               'z'
    shift, capslock:                    'Z'
}
 
key Z {
    label:                              'Y'
    base:                               'y'
    shift, capslock:                    'Y'
}
 
5. Save it
 
6. Done

Well, it's not just Y and Z being switched, most special characters, punctuation marks and of course the umlauts are all switches or gone. Might be a common problem, the solution was to simply change the layout in the settings. Everything worked fine on 2.0.2, however since the update to 2.1.0 the settings app will crash when you try to change the layout of your physical keyboard. Maybe this will be fixed by miracle in any coming update but actually doubt it.

That's strange. With my keyboard everything is fine with ä,ö,ü and so on, and I never had to change the settings in any way. The only thing I had to do was to edit the generic.kcm, like I mentioned, but I'm used to do that since my first android tablet.

Hm, maybe it's a problem with CleanONDA rom which I use. Though kadz mentioned via pm that he is on stock and experienced the same problem with OndaZ. I did not have to edit the generic.kcm on neither of my devices (with Android 4.0+) up to this point by the way.

Used the Logitech http://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/bluetooth-illuminated-keyboard-k810before I gave it to my brother and it was sweet. Switching between TV stick, tab and laptop was nice...the layout is full keyboard minus the numbers pad, 80$ on newegg. The k480 also has a tablet stand for 50$ http://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/multi-device-keyboard-k480

I just received my TeckNet KB. Thank you. 

 

I got more for a protector and occasional kb. It is very stylish and matches perfectly. Since the V989 is a little thicker than the Ipad Air; I removed the magnetic strip (can't use anyway) so that there is less pressure on the "fingers" and to reduce the chance of fatigue and or cracking. Much, much better and even looks like it was made for our V989.

As you mentioned, some hot keys do not respond since it is intended for IOS. Pairing was painless and the KB had precharged battery!

 

QWERTY kb configuration here.

 

Good choice.
