Video: Nokia N900 and Neos BluSlim BTK-1 Bluetooth Keyboard

In early March when we posted about the SU-W8 pairing up with the N900, some of you asked whether it could also work with other Bluetooth Keyboards.

amandahoic demonstrates the Neos BluSlim BTK-1 Bluetooth Keyboard with the N900 (and N810)

It doesn’t fold up like the SU-W8. It’s a rigid slab that’s comparable to a EEEPC 901 KB.

However, unlike the Nokia SU-W8, Neos BluSlim has 6 rows of keys!

I am not sure if this will connect to the N900 easily like the SU-W8. amandahoic links to maemo.org for instructions on unsupported BT profiles.

I think like the SU-W8, the keyboard configuration matches the N900.

If you wanted to rearrange the keys so what you press on the keyboard matches the screen you may want to check out

The keyboard also seems to have options for Chinese character input, though mapping the keys seem to affect this feature.

    Hi, I am amandahoic. I’ve been viewing your articles and videos and you did a very great job!! And thanks for linking my video to your article!!

    I made that video in the midnight and perhaps I was too tired, I had made a typo in the video. The brand name of the keyboard should be “Neos” instead of “Neo”. I’ve fixed the typo in the Youtubue video, and please also make the same change to your article accordingly.

    Regarding the Chinese input issues, it’s more related to the bugs of the MSCIM input method software rather than the keyboard mapping issues themselves.

      Thanks Amanda.

      Name has been edited. 🙂
      Also, what batteries does your keyboard take?

    My keyboard takes two AAA batteries, as shown in the video. =)
