I currently use TrueCrypt for our companies laptop and tablet encryption. This works great for laptops but for tablets its not so good. The users have to carry around a usb keyboard since TrueCrypt doesnt work with bluetooth. The encryption is on startup so it asks for a password before bluetooth is running leaving only usb. Is there another encryption software that i can use that can let users put in a password with a bluetooth keyboard?

I don't think will have one to support BT at preboot unless there are Serial comms or usb dongle of that sort supported by preboot encryption solution.

From EE -

Bluetooth devices work when they are paired with the device. Pairing, and initializing paired devices happen at the OS level. So the answer is no, you cannot use the Bluetooth keyboard pre boot.
