Hi,

I wanted to know how i can transfer files via bluetooth to this thing. I tried using bluetooth file transfer in windows 7. Sent over an image file but it doesn't show up on the touchpad. The touchpad shows up as a bluetooth headset device on windows.

Help?

Windows 7 successfully transfers the file whatever it may be but then doesnt show up in Touchpad. I used Internalz Pro to browse the TP drive but nothing. Any ideas?

Look into /tmp folder on your Touchpad.

I'm also hoping for some skilled developer to make a small app for that. Something when you get BT transfer it'd show up and ask what to do with the file, where to save it. Not to mention ability to send files from webOS devises would be nice.
