Windows 7 Bluetooth Keyboard Emulation?

Are there any utilities for Windows 7 that will allow me to treat my USB keyboard as a Bluetooth device for a nearby mobile device? Basically Windows 7 would read the keys from the USB keyboard and then send out as if windows were a bluetooth keyboard? Why would I want this? So that I can just use my ergonomic keyboard right on the desk with a nearby tablet or phone without having to purchase and set up a separate bluetooth keyboard. Any advice is appreciated, thanks!

Never heard of a software or hardware that does what you are asking for. There is no economic reason to create such functionality since a Bluetooth Keyboard costs, how much, 20-40 USD?

Well I haven't found a BlueTooth keyboard that could remotely compare to the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 that I use. Not even for a lot more than $40. And having two keyboards on the desk is also not ideal.

It's funny that I see a lot of mobile apps that let you use a mobile device AS a bluetooth keyboard but not the other way around, heh.
