Unfortunately for me, the next time I worked with the keyboard, I was on a plane trip. I decided to get some writing done (I write novels in my free time) and fired up the keyboard and the Fire. But this time, the keyboard wouldn't pair. At all. The Fire SAID the Keyboard could be paired -- it remembered they had been paired before -- but it just wouldn't pair it. I tried everything I could think of, including pressing the connect button on the keyboard several times to re-pair it. In the end, I had to give up. Instead, desperate to use the flight to write, I borrowed my wife's iPhone 4S. Oddly enough, that had NO problem connecting to the keyboard and I was writing in no time (albeit on a smaller screen and in the notes mode).
When I arrived on vacation, I was worried I had a lemon on my hands. Sure, the keyboard worked, but not with the Fire, only the iPhone. That wasn't the plan. I noticed that other reviews said that the keyboard worked initially with the Fire and then wouldn't work again. I thought there was a major glitch.
I decided to keep messing with it and discovered this problem and solution. If you ONLY pair the keyboard with the Fire, you will have no problems. Basically, you turn on the keyboard, fire up the, uh, Fire and go to the Bluetooth settings (under wireless), press the keyboard device, press a key on the keyboard (so it can detect it), and you are connected no problem.
If, on the other hand, you pair the keyboard with a DIFFERENT device -- like an iPhone or another Android tablet -- then things get wonky. Basically, the Fire won't recognize the keyboard at all, even if you try the initial pairing/connecting again.
Fortunately, the solution is fairly easy. You need to "unpair" the keyboard. You do this by pressing the keyboard device image on the Kindle Fire Bluetooth set-up screen. If you just press and hold for a few seconds, the Fire gives you the option to "unpair." Click it. Then all you have to do is re-pair the keyboard and Fire. This is also relatively simple. Click the "connect" button on the under-side of the keyboard, and tell the Fire to search for devices. You enter a 4-number code and you're done.
Be aware, however, that you will have to do this EVERY time you connect the keyboard to another device.
Overall, the keyboard works great. I've found it fast and responsive, and experienced none of the "repeating key" problems that others have. And if I never use the keyboard with another device, set-up is a breeze. If my wife does use it for her iPhone, be aware that the keyboard works fine with that device, BUT you will just to unpair and then repair the phone. It's not that big a deal once you do it a couple times, but for some, it might be an issue.
Hope this helps in your buying decision.
I've had great luck with it. It paired up quickly and hasn't given me any trouble. The Kindle recognized it and gave me a 4 digit code to enter. I typed the code on the keyboard and it paired right up.
I've been using this on the commuter train when I travel and it's really fantastic. I read the other reviews and see where others had trouble. I assume these kinks have been worked out in the Kindle software, because it's working great for me.
A couple of nice things about the way it works with the Kindle Fire HD:
* Once the BT keyboard is paired, the soft keyboard no longer displays on the screen when you're in a text field. This leaves you with a lot more viewable space on the screen.
* You can navigate through the screen with the arrow keys and press enter to activate a button. Tapping on the screen is still faster, but it's nice to have the option to navigate either way.
* The Home and Menu buttons work great on the Fire. From any screen, press the Home button on the keyboard and it takes you to the Fire's home page.
****Update Dec. 8****
Since many people are asking: It works with any bluetooth enabled device that supports HID (which 99% of the devices out there supports already). I have tested it with iPad 2, iPhone 4S, Windows 7 laptop, Macbook Pro, Blackberry Playbook and Asus Transformer.
However, Amazon does not sell a case for this keyboard. This is a perfect travel keyboard, but carrying it bare in my day bag concerned me. I did a LOT of searching for some kind of generic slip case that would fit. Nothing.
Then I stumbled on the Domke protective wrap, which is just a square of padded material with Velcro at the corners. It's designed for wrapping cameras and lenses. The 11" square fit the keyboard perfectly. I took it down to a local tailor shop and for $3 they sewed up the long side of the square when folded over on itself and one of the short sides creating a slip case. The protective wrap has a soft felt-like side and a nylon side. I folded it with the soft side on the inside. Now I have a perfect slip case for the keyboard, and for just about $15 ($12 for the wrap from Amazon and $3 for the sewing).
