I have a touchpad with android 4.0.3 running that is having a problem pairing to an HP wifi Keyboard. When I boot in WebOS, there is no problem at all, When I boot in droid... it sees the keyboard, I click on it and it tells me it's not compatible...

Any suggestions?

There is a utility in the Play Store (search for Bluetooth Keyboard) that will aid in connecting up the keyboard. I needed to use it to test that my HP TouchPad Keyboard would work with Android.

Does the app leave something behind even after it is removed?
