    I was wondering if I could get ANY bluetooth keyboards?

    I need help now that HP.com is sold out.

    You don't really have to have an HP keyboard. I believe pretty much any BT KB will work. I happened to have an Apple KB and it works fine.

    The Logitech keyboard (Android 3.0 version) works fine though pairing is kind of a pain-in-the-****. You need to find out what the 6-digit code is and then it needs to be entered 2 times every time you pair it with your TP! But trodecke is right, almost any BT will work. I prefer the HP BT keyboard because of its special webOS buttons, though plus pairing is virtually seamless.

    HP's small & med business division appears to have their touchpad keyboard in stock for $39.99. It's under computing accessories>input devices>keyboards>wireless keyboards.

    It took me a couple of tries to figure it out.

    1) Put the Apple keyboard in discovery mode
    2) Open the Bluetooth app on your TP and take the option to add a device
    3) When the TP finds the keyboard select it by touching it
    4) The TP asks you to enter the digits for your keyboard. This is where I got hung up. You can type any 8 digits you want to but I recommend typing 1 thru 8, then press Enter on your TP.
    5) Enter the same 8 digits on your Apple keyboard then press Enter on the keyboard.

    You should now have a synced keyboard.
