BlackBerry's don't support the HID profile for BT. You can't use a BT keyboard with them.

Our organization actually has some users that have the Eleksen Fabric Keyboard. We just started using the 8100 so have not tested with this device yet but for the 8700 series it works flawlessly!

I sent email to their tech support about the keyboard below and the 8100 and was told that they are working on a driver and plan to have it released in Jan. 2007.

This keyboard is made for BlackBerrys. It will work. There are drivers that you load into the BlackBerry.
