Is the Nokia Wireless Keyboard SU-8W (Bluetooth 1.1) compatible with my Nokia 700 (Bluetooth 3.0) handset running Symbian Belle? It is not listed under the supported devices of the keyboard, however I believe that it should function without problem since I have seen people use it with iPhone 4 and iPad.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Try installing the Belle Feature Pack 1 update. It is available and maybe it may solve your issues.
Thank you for your response.
However I must stress that I have not run into any issues since I have not yet purchased the device to try.
I was asking for further clarification for the compatibility with Bluetooth keyboards for my Nokia 700 device.
Can confirm no issues using SU-8W with N8 running Belle, apart from typing "z" which is better result than Anna which couldn't type "y" which was very useful with my username!
However, the Nokia N8 is listed under the compatible handsets of the SU-8W keyboard. The Nokia 700 on the other hand is not.
Did you require any installation of extra software or programmes on your N8 hanset in order to use the keyboard? And surely if you cannot type "z" it is a serious flaw?
Since SU-8W no longer marketed doubt that they will ever upgrade compatibility page, no need to install "wireless keyboard .sis" drivers upon Symbian S^3 devices.
For typing in English (UK) lack of "z" not that serious as one of least common letters whereas used more in English (US), but I can always use Apple Bluetooth keyboard if situation arises!
Can I use USB OTG via a USB Host cable connected to my phone?
You should be able to use OTG feature although need keyboard with low current consumption below 100mA and no additional ports, however have been some reports of more USB OTG issues upon Belle than with Anna.
Have just tried Apple Bluetooth keyboard which took several attempts to pair and authorise but functioning perfectly with N8 Belle after choosing desired keyboard from selection available.
