    Keyboard and Mouse.

    I'm quite confused and was hoping someone could clear things up for me.I'm looking to buy a small/lightweight keyboard and mouse for my xoom.For the keyboard, the obvious option will be the official Motorola Bluetooth keyboard. What I would like to know is, does this need any attachments or do I simply search for it on the xoom and connect through Bluetooth?As for the mouse, I'm not sure what the best option would be but don't really want to spend too much on it. If I were to buy a Bluetooth mouse, would this need any attachments either? Or would everything I need be built in to simply search and connect again?Or, if I were to use a wired mouse, would I be able to connect it to the xoom using the camera connection kit?Thanks for any help and I'll post more details/explain things clearer if required. :-)

    You don't need anything extra to use Bluetooth keyboards and mice, and the Camera Connection kit will allow you to use USB ones.

    Is the official motorola keyboard better than other standard bluetooth keyboards? I'm sure there are cheaper options than the moto.

    Logitech makes a nice Android keyboard for less than Motorola wants.

    Any chance you could send a link for the keyboard? (As the moto one is still far too expensive to consider seriously) :P

    I wanted a wireless mouse for my Xoom (3.2). I have the Moto BT keyboard.. I tried a cheap Inland BT mouse ($13) and after about a minute's use, the keyboard got kicked off. (Lost BT connection). Returned the mouse and bought a more expensive I/O Magic BT mouse ($24). It lasted maybe two minutes before the keyboard lost it's connection. Decided to get a wireless mouse that uses a USB dongle, but found from reading reviews on Amazon that an inexpensive micro USB (m) to USB (f) adapter would not work for the Xoom. It had to be a OTG (On The Go) Host adapter. All that means is that pin 4 is grounded, and instead of costing $3, the thing costs $10 to $20 (Moto Camera Kit). Got the kit, (tired of wasting gas running to different stores), got a Logitec wireless mouse on sale for $15, all works well.

    Although I can't register for the free keyboard mouse, its good to see from Motorola.

    Anyway, bought a belkin Bluetooth mouse for a Tenner and works beautifully. Will just be looking out for a moto keyboard on eBay for a while :-)
