    Default Can the Z10 be paired with the Playbook Bluetooth Keyboard?

    Has anyone been able to pair there Z10 with a Playbook Bluetooth Keyboard yet?

    I have tried, but I cannot get the Z10 to recognize the keyboard. I have been able to pair the Playbook Keyboard with the laptop and other devices but not the Z10.

    You should be able to, there was a YouTube video of someone using a mouse and keyboard on their Z10. I haven't tried it myself, but let me know if you have any success.

    I have resolved and can now pair my Playbook Bluetooth Keyboard with my Z10. You need to put the keyboard into discovery mode by pressing the CTRL key when turning the keyboard on. Then refresh your bluetooth settings in the Bluetooth network connections settings on the Z10. The device will show up as a new "peripheral". You will need to enter the pairing number on the keyboard to complete the process.
    I don't know if I will use it much but it is nice to know it works.
