Playbook Pairing with Wi-Fi Mouse per KB26514

I may be mis-reading the KB article

 

(http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/btsc/viewdocument.do?noCount=true&externalId=KB26514&sliceId=1&cm...

 

but it appears to say that a wireless keyboard or mouse can be paired via Bluetooth with the PlayBook. 

I followed the instructions and the PlayBook "found" my mobile phone and Panasonic TV, but not a mouse.

My own thinking is that the wireless dongle that would be plugged into (e.g.) a laptop, would have to be somehow involved?

Is it me?? (c) T.Wogan TOGS

All assistance greatly appreciated

The wireless keyboard and mouse must be bluetooth units and not just regular wireless keyboards/mouses that come with standard wireless dongles.

Many thanks for your help John.  

I was sort of anticipating the answer,but was hoping it might have been otherwise...!

I would suggest the KB article should be revised to make things a little clearer.

 

Again.thanks for your help.
