    Evening.

    I read recently that WP7 doesn't support bluetooth or usb (adapted) keyboards. Is this still true in Mango?

    Does anyone have a workaround or similar if so? It would be impossibly useful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Good evening CjEggett, well mine certainly still doesn't connect via bluetooth even with Mango.
    (Microsoft bluetooth keyboard)

    Still an unsupported profile in the bluetooth stack as far as I know.

    Cheers. Odd that it would be unsupported with the MS Office intergration. Feels kind of basic. Any suggestion that we'll get usb/bluetooth keyboard support in the future?

    I'm planning to move from a N900 and deciding what I can live without.

    No idea i'm afraid what bluetooth profiles are planned for the future CjEggett.

    Wouldn't mind a file transfer profile myself. :)

    Yes BT on WP7 is currently very basic. :(

    Windows Phone supports the following Bluetooth user profiles:

    Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP 1.3)
    Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP 1.0)
    Hands Free Profile (HFP 1.5)
    Headset Profile (HSP 1.1)
    Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP 1.0)

    That's your lot.
