    External keyboard and mouse.

    Hi guys, i've been thinking of getting an external keyboard and mouse for my TF101.
    I have tried to use a wired keyboard, and that worked, but i want wireless keyboard and mouse.

    Does anyone know of anyone that works? I also want it to work on my Windows computer

    I use this one in black.
    Despite its small size, the key spacing is perfect for me, larger than on a netbook. I can type as quickly on this as on a desktop keyboard.
    The quality is very good, the key press is better than my laptop.

    Amazon.com: Perixx PERIBOARD-804i, Wireless Keyboard for iPad 2 and iPhone - Bluetooth Technology with 33 Ft Operating Range - Silver/White Color - 10x5" Portable Size - Slim 1/4" Design - Compatible with Android and Windows - Scissor Keys - Recharge

    The keyboard is the width of the Transformer and about half the height, it is only 1/4 thick, but very solid.
    The scissor key mechanism is the same used on apple keyboards.

    Not all the dedicated function keys work in android

    I use a Bluetooth Mouse normally, but any wireless mouse should work. Some users who have tried a Keyboard/Mouse combo have had bad luck as the TF cannot tell the KB from the mouse. But separate components, I have not found one that doesnt work.

    The biggest thing is to find one with the range you need. Most mice are 3-5 feet. Bluetooth is typically 30 feet.

    Logitech has an "Android Bluetooth Mouse" that works, but it's $5 more (approximately) compared to the V470, and as far as I can tell, they're identical (I have the Android mouse).

    As long as you're not a left handed mouse user, it'll work fine. There doesn't appear to be a way to swap mouse buttons under Android.

    And do take note of what Frederuco said about combo mouse + keyboard. I haven't tried it myself, but a number of people reported that only one device would work.

    Thank you guys, for the help.
    I bought the Logitech MK260 ( Logitech Norge - Wireless Combo MK260 )
    Payd approximately 53 dollars (300 norwegian kroners) for the set of keyboard and mouse, and it works perfectly, both on my TF and my PC
    (If you think that was expencive: You can compare it to the Mac keyboard and mouse that would have set me down about 215 dollars )

    I guess if you use external mouse and keyboard then there will be some connection problem or USB will not detect.

    No, they both work perfectly. MK260 is both mouse and keyboard.

    That's interesting. The last few people reported that a combo mouse and keyboard doesn't work, it's good to have confirmation that this one does. Thanks for the update. Are you running ICS or still on Honeycomb?

    Hmm... same here, back in Honeycomb none of my wireless Keyboard and Mouse set worked, I might just try them out with ICS.
