I did a search,which was inconclusive, as per the $30 Blutooth keyboards for sale on eBay. Does anyone here have and use one? I'm thinking that Bluetooth is Bluetooth but why are these so cheap and the "official" ones cost $130 ? I would get one, just for giggles, but I'm not going to throw money down a hole if it isn't a workable item. Thanks for any info.

I have tried various bluetooth devices and drawn a blank. If the device is not sold by or recommended by Blackberry there's a good chance it will not work.
Sellers on ebay tend to include playbook to attract searches, for example you see many usb keyboards advertised for "playbook, ipad, nexus etc" when we all know playbook usb is only for data transfer and charging.

Yeah, I had a feeling that I would get a response like that. I'm sorry that you wasted your money but I'm glad I found out before wasting mine. I don't have any problems with the Playbook keyboard but I thought that the actual physical item would be a nice thing to have.
I haven't seen the "official" Blackberry keyboard for less than $130 dollars and that is just TOO much for, what amounts to, a splurge item.
Thanks for the response.

I'm guessing that's a big NO!
There's a store in Canada, similar to Best Buy or Staples here, that has them on sale for $69 dollars but the catch is it's an instore sale only no internet sales. I would even go that high if it were only available online. Oh well.
