I forgot I had one of these! I hope you find those drivers I'd be interested in trying it out as well.

Ideally any Bluetooth device will work with BT enable device. I am using Amzer keyboard from last 3 years and 2 days back paired with my new Bold... you can use 8100 drivers from here AMZERxxx::xxxSmart Keyboard Downloads

I used the 8100 drivers and the error when I click the keyboard icon on BB is :Uncaught expcetion: javal.lang.Nullpointer exception.
How do i rectify this or shall I download the drivers labeled " other blackberry devices on the amzer site?
EDIT: no luck again . same error !! Pl help

Ok I may be wrong but I think Freedom makes the palm bt keyboard. I paid for a unique code and followed the instructions for the freedom universal. However when I update my Bluetooth services the slave spp doesn't show up which makes me think it's an hid only device, which means it won't work for bb.

I have the freedom keyboard and it works fine with my Bold. I had previously used it with my pearl. I went to their website and dled the driver and of course when I installed it I had to have an unlock code. I emailed support and gave them the model number and serial number of the keyboard, and they emailed back the unlock code and it unlocked the driver.
