Slowly I'm getting into this PC Tablet. My iPad coming arriving at the same time my A9 has slowed down my A9 experience.
Until today, 7 Sep, I had 4 bluetooth computers: iPad, Dell Inspiron E1705 Laptop, A5A, and A9. At the end of last week my jWIN Stereo Bluetooth Backphones
arrived from Amazon USA ($26.49 4 Star Rating):
Today I got in my Bluetooth Mini Kb with Touch Pad by SolidTek
from Amazon USA ($76.72 3 Star Rating):
The KB/TP included a BT USB dongle and drivers for WinXP on a CD. I plugged the dongle into my Dell Inspiron 530 running Home Premium SP2. So now I have 5 BT computers.
As the topic titles says "Win7 Starter" and that's what I'll be running for quite a while. When I got my A9 Windows went through a bunch of updates. I installed the recommended drivers from our forum.
The BT headphones required Windows to find, and me to install, a BT driver. Once installed the headphones worked fine. The BT KB/TP works fine w/o any additional drivers. The TP is multitouch for some additional functions.
Summary of Working BT devices on the 5 Computers:1. Dell Inspiron E1705 Laptop
- didn't try because I don't care for BT on it.2. iPad
- Headphones work, Keyboard works, Trackpad doesn't because the iPad does not support a BT mouse unless jailbroken and my iPad at 3.2.2 is not eligible to be jailbroken. Gotta wait for iOS 4.23. Dell Inspiron 530 Tower
- KB/TP works, don't know about Headphones since I didn't try them because I don't need Headphones on the 530.4. A5A
- Headphones work, haven't been able to pair the KB/TP yet.5. A9
- Headphones and KB/TP both work.
Next week I get in a new Mac Mini and I'll be trying the BT KB/TP with it. I expect it to work. I don't expect to try the Headphones with the Mac Mini since I'll HDMI attach it to my Sony AV system.
Anyway I very pleased with my recent BT purchases from Amazon USA. Very nice to have a real KP/TP for the A9 and I expect the A9 will see plenty of use with the Headphones. The A5A should as well since the A5A recognizes the BT controls for Volume, Play/Pause and Forward/Back. Which is great in the car as a remote control. I haven't found the BT controls useable with the A9, yet.
PS: Looks like I should be able to do BT file transfer 'tween the Dell 530 and the A9. I haven't checked it out yet.
