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.Read more ›
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).
All special character keys work, including @. Keys only repeat when they are held down. The home key works. The menu key works. The Tab key moves between buttons in a selection box; shift+Tab moves backwards, just as it does in Windows. The Search key works. The Back key works. The two speaker volume keys work (one to raise volume, one to lower it).
The four arrow keys work! They can be used to move the carousel in both directions, or to navigate choices in a menu. If you are in a text editor or email document, holding the shift key while pressing an arrow selects text, just like Windows. What is more, Ctrl+c copies selected text to the clipboard, Ctrl+x cuts it, and Ctrl+V pastes it. The arrow keys also move the cursor in a document, which is a lot better control than using your stubby finger! Ctrl+a selects all text in a document, and pressing backspace deletes whatever is selected, as it does in Windows. Ctrl+e puts you in your default email program and brings along either all the text in your current document or the currently selected text, I forget which.
The only key that apparently doesn't do anything is the Alt/Option key. I was hoping that maybe it would perform a swipe down from the title bar to open up all the settings, but it won't do that (it would be great if it could be programmed to do that). Or maybe it could select the "favorites" star, that would be cool.Read more ›

Excellent. This is exactly what I needed. It's a tiny bit smaller than the standard mac computer wireless keyboard but that does not at all take away from how great it is.Published 12 days ago by Christine
