Android :: Any Recommendations For Bluetooth Keyboard / Mouse?
Jun 6, 2010
I have just taken delivery of an Android ADP2, which I plan to use as a development platform, as well as my personal phone. I have played a bit with the on-screen keyboard and have determined that some designer must have much smaller fingers than me, so I am in the market for a keyboard/mouse that works over Bluetooth.
Is it ever so possible for the android OS to make it self look like a mouse/keyboard through bluetooth to allow remote control of a computer without having to have any HOST/SERVER software running on the computer being controlled? If this is possible, that means many devices like the PS3 and shi* would be able to be remote controlled by an android phone no matter what because bluetooth mice and keyboard are accepted by many devices.
I was wondering if anyone has tried this combo. Can you plug your phone up to these three things and pop it to a larger screen and use a mouse and keyboard? It would be pretty cool if you could... I see a lot of fun possibilities with that type of setup.
I know the Dell Streak is noted to have the ability to use a Bluetooth keyboard with it. And a mouse, I think? Will you be able to use a bluetooth keyboard with the Captivate? mouse? It runs the 3.0 bluetooth, would that be an issue? Can 2.0 bluetooth devices work with 3.0?
I downloaded a good app to control the keyboard and mouse in my mac. It's called remoteDroid. IT does what it says. But I'd like to be able to zoom in and out me the screen like when I use I wireless mouse and keyboard. Anyone know any apps that can do this?
I have my desk setup with 2 monitors and an Android Tablet sitting in its dock right next to that. I have been doing some research and found a lot of apps that allow you to use the tablet as a monitor for your computer. But that is not what I want to do. I was wondering if there was a way to setup the tablet so that I could move my mouse over from the monitor onto the tablet and control the Android Tablet with my computer's mouse and keyboard in the Android environment. So this way I can run things like Calendar, Email, Hangouts and other apps with my mouse and keyboard just by moving it over from my main displays like I can between a primary and secondary screen.
Is there an app that can use the bluetooth to use the Incredible as a mouse? I currently use gmote but that is limited by requirement of Wifi. You would think that a bluetooth app would be easier/no brainer.
My boyfriend has a Motorola Droid and wants Bluetooth headphones. Does anyone have any recommendations on which would be good to get him? I don't know too much about this stuff and I want to get him a good gift.
I'm looking for a way to connect my Samsung Galaxy S GT-i9000 with bluetooth, to serve as a bluetooth mouse on my Nexus tablet 7. I already try several application offers in the respective forums of my devices but nothing works.
Here are the characteristics of my two devices:
Samsung Galaxy S GT-i9000: CM10, Android 4.1.2, kernel stock; Asus Google Nexus 7: DIrty AOKP 2.6, Android 4.2.1, Kernel MKernel 3.1.10
I have an AT&T Captivate with teamhacksung's build 13. When I connect the BT mouse I only have "Back" and "Click" buttons functioning. I used to be able to do "Back", "Click", "Menu", "Search" from stock froyo. Is there a way to redefine the buttons or add additional function?
Any list or link to a list of keyboard and mouse commands for our tablet?
I have a bluetooth mini keyboard* with a built in mouse and I would like to be able to control my tablet from my couch while it is connected to my TV's HDMI. However, I cannot figure out how to do basic tasks with the keyboard. The keyboard is this type: [URL] ......
Also, I'm not sure if the commands are tablet-specific, Android specific, or if they even exist at all. (I have searched XDA and Google, but because I do not know exactly what keywords to use, I am coming up without answers!)
Shortcuts I mainly need: 1-3) The three icons in the lower left of taskbar (they don't appear through HDMI): Back, Home, and the Prev Apps 4) Change homescreens/swipe left and swipe right (I can long click and move the mouse to do this, but it is difficult to do with my mouse since it is a knob type) 5) Long hold 6) Any other commands... heck, let's make a database if it doesnt exist already!
In case it matters: I am using ICS 4.0.3 stock (with root).
I want to connect my Galaxy Nexus to a TV and control it from my Galaxy Tab via bluetooth. Every app that I found allows me to use my android device as a remote for a pc, not for other Android device...
Friend of mine told me today that ones of his co-workers have their phone set-up where it is bluetooth connected to his laptop, His laptop is connected to his home television which makes the tv act as his monitor, then he uses his android phone as the wireless keyboard and trackball for the mouse. He wasn't sure what phone exactly he had, or what app he was using.
My questions are. Is this possible with the eris? If so, is there a specific app you need to get? I know that the Eris doesn't do data over bluetooth, so I don't know if this is something that won't work now, but may work with an upgrade to 2.x. This is something that I would be interested in doing.
I'm looking to increase the speed/acceleration of a bluetooth/usb mouse on my android tablet/phone/any other android device. I've noticed there are no such features/options when pairing the device in honeycomb/ICS (via settings). My device/s are rooted.
I'm using GT N8000 with android 4.1.2 and chroot Ubuntu Raring for my daily work.. I manage to use framebuffer as display WITHOUT turning off android UI using Linux Deploy, all went great but one thing missing is since android and ubuntu shares the same display, input problems pops in, I currently disable s-pen cursor on android so it will work best on ubuntu, as well as bluetooth keyboard.
one thing left out is my Bluetooth mouse, its bugging to have dual mouse pointer on screen whenever I boot ubuntu and each didnt match others in calibration.
if only I can disable android mouse cursor just the way I can disable s-pen cursor in android, this will make a perfect machine.. now I'm stuck using only s-pen as pointing device in ubuntu to avoid erratic mouse behaviour. I understand android have idc as input config, and I've located my dev/input for each devices, I'm looking for a way to disable mouse cursor in android to use it solely on linux.
In my previous phone Samsung Omnia I could set up mouse pad to be up/down, loft/right highlight/move mode or I set it up as a full mouse capability with the little arrow that I could move just like a computer mouse. Is there a way to set up the full desktop like mouse capability on the Incredible?
I'm wondering if its possible to use the android as a bluetooth keyboard.
I want to hook the android up to my macbook pro to use it as a keyboard. my macbook has a broken screen so i use an external monitor now. i want to set the computer up somewhere more discretely but i don't have another keyboard to use. is this possible?
I connect my GNex via MHL to my TV. I also have a Nexus 7. Is there any possible way to use my N7 as a remote control/bluetooth keyboard to control my GNex? Run a VNC Server on the phone and a VNC Viewer on the tablet, but this is laggy.
Does anyone know a good/working mini bluetooth keyboard (or even micro USB) that works with the Desire without a root. It would be good if it had a dock so it was "attached" to the keyboard, and excellent if it could be used to play games, e.g. SNESOID etc or Quake 3 etc. Micro USB might be better if such a thing exists due to the dodgy nature of the Desire's bluetooth.
If you are like me, you have been impatiently waiting for bluetooth support for keyboards / joysticks specifically the wii controller.Is it just me who wants this or what?I'm on the developer forums all the time and hardly see anyone mention this.All I know is that the nexus supported this feature, but the Evo doesn't. Seems that Sense UI screwed up this capability.HOWEVER, after installing android 2.2, with bluetooth fully functioning it seems that it still doesn't work which leads me to believe that the bluetooth HID profile is missing.
I have an HTC Inspire 4g running Mustaavalkosta's unofficial Cyanogenmod 10.1 ROM. Everything works great, except my Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000, which is an HID Bluetooth keyboard (no SPP). I get a proper PIN exchange and it pairs with my phone successfully, but I can't actually type anything with the keyboard, and it does not appear in the Languages and Input section of the Settings app. The keyboard itself is good because I can use it with my laptop and an iPad.
I've tried apps like BlueInput, MyBlueCon, and Bluetooth keyboard easyconnect, but all fail to make a connection with my keyboard. In the case of BlueInput, I get a message that "this Android does not support Bluetooth HID."
I'm trying to pair my bluetooth keyboard, which worked perfectly under Gingerbread, but will not pair under ICS. Basically, the keyboard will not go into pairing mode until I give it a pin, and ICS won't give me the pin until the keyboard is pairing. Is there any way to tell ICS what pin to expect before trying to pair? This is the sequence I am doing:
1. Put keyboard in discoverable mode. 2. Select the keyboard in the bluetooth menu. 3. Type in a pin on the keyboard and hit enter. 4. A dialog comes up on the tablet telling me what pin to use to pair. (I have to type in the pin in the keyboard for this to come up) 5. Pairing fails after about 1/4 of a second.
The Droid is a computer with a phone.Old guys need a real keyboard.The Palm Clie had a fold up keyboard that went to full size and plugged into the Clie.So when are we going to get a blue tooth full size keyboard? I only want 5% of the net for this idea!
