USB Keyboard

Hi,

 

I see many USB Keyboard Cases available on sites like ebay, etc.

 

Does the Playbook support a USB Keyboard. I have the 16GB Playbook with Software Version 2.1.0.1088.

 

Thanks

Re: USB Keyboard

USB keyboards are not supported but there are Blue Tooth ones that you can use.

It does support some bluetooth wireless keyboards, not all. You don't say which ones you're looking at.

 

Here's one it does:  http://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Bluetooth-Keyboard-Blackberry-Playbook/dp/B009QO7220/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UT...

Re: USB Keyboard

It has been long time.  Black Berry should enable USB keyboard support to the keyboards so as to promote the playbook.

The Playbook is out of production for a couple years, end of life for six months.
