    Iconia A500 Bluetooth Keyboard "Fail"

    Purchased ACER bluetooth Keyboard from the Acer store. it arrived, paired and connected ok. Here are my issues:

    1. user manual is about 20 pages thick, in every language you can imagine and doesn't really explain anything except how to pair. Oh and provide explaination of buttons.
    2. Search, Home and volume keys are all that work.

    The keyboard is definately paired and connected, but can't get function out of any other keys.

    Any help out there would be appreciated..

    Normally a keyboard won't do anything unless a text box is open that would have brought up the onboard keyboard. The search/home/volume are there all the time, so that is why they work all the time. Open a notepad app or tap on the address bar in the browser and see if it works. I've tested two bluetooth keyboards with my Acer and both work as I've explained.

    I just received the Acer bluetooth keyboard. I like the shape, size, etc., and the layout is fine, pairs, etc.

    Problem is the shift function doesn't work to enter alternate characters like, say, the question mark above the slash key. Does anyone have any idea about why this might be so. At one point, it did work briefly, but now doesn't again. I'm wondering if it has something to do with Honeycomb and this being designed for an older version.

    I returned it to Best Buy, since it won't accept the shift function.
