I have a bluetooth keyboard for my old Palm Tungsten E-2 pda. I was hoping it would work with my Droid X but no luck so far. Does anyone know how to make it work or is it just plain not compatible?

if you are on cyanogenmod it should have the drivers baked into the os but I remember seeing something a while ago about HID bluetooth stack and drivers for a bluetooth keyboard let me go a searching

Ok you have to have an SPP supported keyboard for this to work but anywho this is the trial and see if it will work on your phone https://market.android.com/details?id=com.mymobilegear&feature=search_result

Thanks Cory. None of the keyboards listed seem to work. Mine is the Universal Wireless Keyboard by Palm.

try the first driver located in the market and use the freedom universal settings... they are almost the same keyboard just rebranded


or try that second link


Compatibility
A) Bluetooth Input Devices Compatibility
The BlueInput Driver was designed to function with any standard HID Device. Since most of the Bluetooth Keyboards support the HID Protocol by design, you will be happy to see your Bluetooth device works with BlueInput out of the box.
B) Android OS Compatibility
Blueinput was designed to run on Android OS 1.5 and above.
Because of the big number of Android devices available on the Market, we cannot guarantee that the software will work on your particular hardware configuration. We've provided a trial version that can be used without the need for a registration key so please run it to test the compatibility. Purchase the software only if it works with your device.
The version 1.6.130 works with devices that have the BlueZ stack installed only. However we've designed Blueinput in a modular way, so we will be able to plug an play new stack modules to extend the Android compatibility list.
The version 1.7.220 supports the Android 2.0, 2.1 or newer, Bluetooth SDK, so this extends the compatibility list even further.

Ah Ha. It is 3169WWZ. Could have sworn it was bluetooth. Got out the old manual and all it says is wireless, no mention of bluetooth or infrared. Thanks for your help. Saved me from wasting a lot of time.

Looking at the Preferences on the Palm, under Communications it includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi but no infrared. Still confused. I'll have to work on it later. Thanx.
