This has nothing to do with the particular keyboard. It's all about
the completely crap version of Bluetooth that Apple has implemented
on the iphone. This is such a half assed version of BT, that it
doesn't support Keyboards, doesn't support stereo headsets, and most
appalling doesn't support resharing the internet connection (BT
modem). My Sony ericsson from last century did that perfectly.

Basically, by March the SDK will be in place and either Mac Ally or
someone else will have implemented the BT keyboard support that Apple
left out.

Mac Ally is a pretty good company in my experience...
