    Sorry, even with the new Blackberry 7100 that has bluetooth can't do this since their bluetooth is crippled to only have headset mode.  The bluetooth profile you are looking for is called HIDP or Human Interface Device Profile.  This is the necessary profile required to attach Bluetooth mouse and keyboard.

    Leo, the question was whether the wireless keyboard could be used with a Blackberry device, not a PC.  Obviously you can use it with a PC!

    Whtrbt7, thank you, that is the info I was looking for!
