I've heard conflicting reports: Is it true that the Bluetooth is only available on the 8.9" Kindle Fire HD and NOT the 7.0" Kindle Fire HD? I have a Kindle Fire and am considering upgrading to get Bluetooth so I can connect an external keyboard.

Bluetooth is on the 7" HD also and it's great. I walked off the range in my yard and got 100 feet with Dell BH200 bluetooth headphones.

No, that's incorrect. I use a Bluetooth keyboard with my 7" Kindle Fire HD. It should also work with Bluetooth speakers.

Hello, can you tell me which Bluetooth keyboard you use with your Kindle Fire HD? I'd love to know a specific one that definitely works. Thanks

I just paired my Vebatim Wireless Bluetooth Folding Keyboard with my new 7.0 Kindle Fire HD (BTW, this keyboard works with my iPhone 4S as well). I found pairing directions for Android from an earlier post on Amazon (copied below):

There are no directions for pairing with an Android device, so here are the steps:

In Android:
Turn on blue tooth.
Scan for devices.

Keyboard:
Turn on the keyboard.
Push the "Pair" button with a pen.

Android:
Select the keyboard.
It will ask for a 4 number password. Enter any 4 numbers.
Press OK

Keyboard:
Enter the same 4 number password you entered in Android.
Press Enter.

I found out the 7" does have Bluetooth and bought it and love it! Great upgrade.

how do I pair my i phone 4 s with my kindle fire hd every time it say's it's paired my i phone say's not supported?

I think you must pay for a Hotspot on your iPhone and then pair it by turning on your Hotspot. You should talk to your phone carrier (mine is through Verizon Wireless). Good luck.

pdanet has an application specifically to tether it with bluetooth on tablets https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pdanet.tablet2&hl=en
and all you need is the pdanet on the bionic and it should work that way

Here is the information available on the spec page for Bluetooth:

Bluetooth with support for A2DP compatible stereo headphones, headsets, and speakers

Does Bluetooth on Kindle Fire HD allow you to sync with Fitbit Flex?

AmazonBasics Bluetooth Keyboard with Mini Travel Stand for Kindle Fire HD 8.9-Inch, Kindle Fire HD 7-Inch, and Other Android Devices (Black) works great and will also work with an iPod or iPad. I also output music to a wireless Bluetooth speaker and the sound is great.

John - It may. There's an app that works with the 7" Fire HD. However, I'd read all of the specs for that app and perhaps contact them to make sure it interacts with the band itself.

Fitbit

Thank you so much for your reply. Can you please give me the name of the app. Fitbit doesn't have telephone customer support so I am patiently waiting for them to reply to my email.
