I have tried in vain to set up an external keyboard to work with my tablet. This is not done automatically when I plug the keyboard into the tablet. Is there something wrong with my tablet or is there some procedure I have to follow?

Is it the one in the following list ?
Which one is it ? They use Bluetooth therefore we have to setup like any BT devices. Please use the following instructions:

Someone told me the tablet works with USB keyboard too, like the ones of other brands which work with both USB and Bluetooth. Still trying hopelessly to figure out a way to get it working.
The reason is that I want to keep the old USB keyboard instead of buying a new bluetooth one which is expensive and has to be recharged periodically, and wasting the old USB one.

The entry-level Slate7 does not have "Master" capability on its USB port. It cannot support external USB devices.
It does work well with Bluetooth keyboards. I've typed many responses with my ancient Palm Bluetooth Keyboard and Slate7.
