    Question I need keyboards with only three buttons

    Hi all

    Do you know if there exists "keyboards" which has only a few buttons? Preferrable only three. And it must support bluetooth, and of course Android.

    I plan to connect a phone to a TV using HDMI, and then play a multiplayer game. So each player needs their own keyboard, but NOT with the same keys (because each player should only be allowed to control their own character)! For instance I could have one keyboard with A, S and D, and another with F, G and H, and so on. Any idea if something like this is possible to get anywhere?

    I found a solution to this. I don't actually need keyboards with different buttons. If I connect two keyboards to my phone, I can use the KeyEvent.getDeviceId() method to know which keyboard a key press is coming from

    The problem now, unfortuantely, is that bluetooth keyboards don't seem to work with Android 2.3 Any suggestions on how to fix this on an un-rooted Galaxy Y?

    Looks like I will have to buy a new phone to get the keyboard to work. But does anyone know if it is acutally possible to connect two bluetooth keyboards at the same time to an Android phone (or tablet)?
