Playbook Pairing with Wi-Fi Mouse per KB26514

I may be mis-reading the KB article




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

Re: Playbook Pairing with Wi-Fi Mouse per KB26514

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

Re: Playbook Pairing with Wi-Fi Mouse per KB26514

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.
