Compatible keyboard for slate 7.

Hello, I have read mixed reviews on connecting a keyboard to the slate 7. I would like to know what type of bluetooth or usb keyboards I can use for this tablet. The problem I see is that there is no normal usb port on this.

Hi,

 

There is a list of many parts on the following document:

Re: Compatible keyboard for slate 7.

Searching for the Bluetooth Keyboard for the Slate7 in that PDF came up empty in the HP Home & Home Office store.  It routed me to a Chat agent with HP.

 

Lora C. was very gracious and helpful.  She could not locate the part number ( A1C64AA) either, but kept looking.

 

Eventually she found it using the HP Partsurfer.  It seems to be only available through the "HP Parts Store".

 

Yes, I found this confusing...

 

The page with the accessory is here:

The number for the Parts Store for the BT keyboard is: 671232-001

 

Hope this helped!

Re: Compatible keyboard for slate 7.

Reviewing the document linked to earlier in the thread, it looks like it is for an enterprise Slate tablet using Windows rather than the Android Slate 7 tablet.  Since the devices listed in the document are for a Windows based device, I can't guarantee they will work for an Android device.

 

Bluetooth technology is fairly standardized, so it more than likely will work.

Re: Compatible keyboard for slate 7.

Hello,

 

I use a Logitech K810 bluetooth keyboard with a Slate 7 and a few iPads. The K810 can pair with 3 Bluethooth devices and it's easy to move from one device to another. I've been very pleased with the keyboard.

Re: Compatible keyboard for slate 7.

Miles,

 

Thank you for confirming at least one bluetooth keyboard that will work with the Slate 7.  I don't have any to test with directly to confirm.

 

Thanks for sharing this with the community.  :smileyhappy:

Re: Compatible keyboard for slate 7.

My Palm Folding Keyboard (3245WW) works quite well!

 

Using it with the Slate7, I have returned to using my "tiny terminal".  :-)
