I was sad the bluetooth keyboard I used with my previous windows mobile phone will not work with Windows Phone 7. When will the bluetooth HID and Keyboard features be implemented?

The phone can see, but not connect to my bluetooth keyboard. This was a big feature for me in Windows Mobile. It will be an even bigger feature in Windows phone 7 when utilizing the Skydrive functionality.

Hello Charles,

The reason for the phone not connecting to your BT keyboard is with BT profiles limitation. Currently Windows Phone 7 supports the following Bluetooth user profiles:

  • Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP 1.2)
  • 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)

I have not seen any public announcement about extending Bluetooth profiles yet, that's why I can't answer your question if/when this would be supported.

Best Regards
Martin V.
