good news

thank you paola, good news:

i reported to the customer service that the PB doesn't receive chars from bt keyboards because it receives only navigation keys (arrows, enter, esc...).
I asked for a solution or a bug fix because this can not be a normal behaviour since PB garantees the bt keyboard support.

When I sent the mail, I received an automatic reply where they said that the request will be processed within 24H. That was true, in fairness I must report to the forum the professionality and the fast response of the PB customer service.

so, this is the crucial part of the tech support response:
"We know about this bug. Our technical team is working on the development of a new firmware update. All the information will be available on our official website."

We're waiting...

Summarizing all that I discovered about bt keyboards and PB and merging it with all I found in the forums, this is the actual situation:

1. Not all bt keyboards works with PB:
- white un-branded chinese flat bt keyboard marked IP17: DOES NOT WORKS! I tried this one also with nokia N8 and it works, but it doesn't work with blackberry.
- white un-branded chinese flat bt keyboard marked PA-BK02: it WORKS! (thanks to M@arcus)
- Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 CXD-00013: it WORKS! (tested by me)
- GeneralKeys PX-2556-675: it WORKS! (thanks to Dolansky)

2. at the moment (v2.1.3) there is no full char set compatibility between PB and bt keyboards. Only navigation keys works.
Same behaviour for PB902 Pro v2.1.3 and v2.1.2, and PV903 Pro v2.1.3 (tested respectively by me and M@rcus).
Based on what M@rcus and osowiecki said in previous posts, the problem was not present in PB903 v2.1.1 beta with keyboard layout set to english.
So, it seems that the bug was introduced recently.

I hope that I have been helpful for who, like me, needs to write a lot of notes while reading.
Anyway I'll go on developing my text editor waiting for the bug fix.

As I discover something new, I'll update the thread. Stay tuned.

I filled out the feedback form in the official site http://www.pocketbook-int.com/us/support, near the support center tel. number.
The request was forwarded to "help@pocketbook.ua".

Hi Gurubaja. Please update information in your post - BT keyboard was working correctly on PB Pro 903 with older firmware. Now I have tested it with 2.1.3, with same result as you on 902 - only cursor keys and enter are working.
Sorry for confusion with 903 - I was not aware that something what was working in old firmware could/would be messed up in newer. (You know it in IT - never try to change something, what is working.)

Thank you M@rcus, post updated.
Now I'll try to test the bt keyboard with previous 2.1.2 official (no fast version).


update: tested also with PB 2.1.2 official, bt kb doesn't work.


Anybody knows if it is possibile download somewhere old beta firmwares?

I tried a keyboard from a colleague (china model without even any Part numbre on it). It works. I can look up words in the dict.
But I have some trouble with poterm:
I can't just type right away when it opens. I have to open the input dialog start the keyboard and the send the command with the "OK" button.
So I can us it, but only after I have used the stylus to open the on screen keyboard, then I can use the BT keyboard instead of the onscreen one, but have to send the command again by tabbing on the screen. That's kinda PITA.
So whats the trick to use it right away in poterm, without the pop up dialog?
EDIT:
fw 2.1.2
