        The  bluetooth keyboard that HP made for the WebOS HP Touchpad works with the HD+.  It's a full-sized keyboard with really good feel.  It is a bit under 2" longer than the HD+.  So far, it's paired up with every device that I've tried with it.

         

        They are still available at Amazon for $40.

          i bought one also but cannot get it to work! driving me nuts!!

            I had the same broblem with pairing Nook HD and Logitech k810.

            I downloaded 'BlueInput Demo' from Google Play Store. It paired me to the Logitech k810 and It works! I am now able to use the k810 with my Nook HD.

             

            You can use 'BlueInput Demo' for like 16 days, if you want to continue using it you have to purchase a license key.

             

            Then only thing I didn't like was that there is not an option to purchase the key through Google play.

            I had to use Pay-Pal to purchase it through the developers site(Teksoft).

              Ionic bluetooth keyboard didn't work with my nook hd+
              • 49. Re: Bluetooth Keyboards

                The first Ionic case/keyboard had keys falling off so it was returned.  I order another (both from Amazon via CrazyonDigital and seems to be of good quality, but will not work.  It pairs easily and can recognize the code when typing on keyboard, but will not work.  I guess I have to return this one too.

                  I have the same $35 one from Amazon.  Great faux case.  But the keyboard will not pair.  I keep getting "will not communicate with keyboard" - does not provide a passcode.  Very fusterated!

                  • 51. Re: Bluetooth Keyboards

                    OK, as I just said in a previous post, I just (2 weeks ago) purchased the Ionic Bluetooth Case and Keyboard from Amazon.com for my Nook HD+.

                     

                    Here is my list of positives and negitives:

                     

                    Pro:

                    √ Very attractive case and keyboard.

                    √ Attractive kick-stand.

                    √ Easy to pair, if you read the instructions.

                    √ Battery lasts 72 hours. (I don't know if it actually lasts that long, but I've only charged it twice so far.)

                    √ Hybernation / Sleep mode to save battery.

                    √ Case fit's like a glove. Tablet does not "slosh around" inside the case, stretching it.

                    √ Magnets in the case and keyboard activate and de-activate the HD+'s 'sleep mode', turning off the screen when you close the case, and turning it back on when you open the case.

                    √ Those same magnet's allow the keyboard to be removed instantly when you want to, but keep it sufficiently connected to the case otherwise.

                    √ Nice Function keys, on the Function Keys, to do common things like: Back, Home, Email, Copy, Paste, Cut, Volume Down, Volume UP, Play/Pause, Rewind, and Fast Forward.

                    √ Ctrl Key

                    √ Alt Key

                    √ Many normal PC hot-key combinations work, like CTRL-C (copy), CTRL-X (cut), and CTRL-V (paste).

                    √ Shift-Left-Arrow and Shift-Right-Arrow will (usually) select text that can (usually) be copied, pasted, or cut. (Usually).

                    √ Home, End, and Delete keys!

                    √ Ctrl-Home, and Ctrl-End keys work (mostly).

                    √ Interesting "Contextual Search" key brings up particular search form, depending on what you're doing.

                    √ Page UP and Page DOWN keys via Fn-Up and Fn-Down.

                    √ Normal placement of symbols on the shifted-number keys.

                    √ The long-touch Copy, Cut, and Paste options are (usually) interchangable with the Ctrl-C, Ctrl-X, and Ctrl-V hot-key combinations.

                    √ CTRL-Left and CTRL-Right will send the curser the the start of the Previous, and Next words.

                    √ CTRL-SHIFT-LEFT will select all text between the curser and the start of the current, or previous word.

                    √ CTRL-SHIFT-RIGHT does the same thing, to the right.

                    √ CTRL-SHIFT-UP/DOWN selects a page of text as would be expected.

                    √ ALT-TAB will switch through the active applications, just like on Windows.

                    √ USUALLY.

                     

                    Cons:

                    0 No way to tell what the status of the battery is.

                    0 No light or app to say, "Fully Charged!", you have to guess.

                    0 No light or app to say, "Charge me now!", the keyboard just starts acting weird(er).

                    0 Keyboard will bend on uneven surface, causing it to miss keysstrokes.

                    0 Keyboard requires firm keypresses that travels all the way to the bottom of the keyboard, or it will miss keystrokes.

                    0 Keyboard, or maybe the Tablet, requires the user to type rather slowly, or it will miss keystrokes.

                    0 If the tablet is lagging, keystrokes WILL be missed.

                    0 Square Mystery Key on top row that does nothing, as far as I can tell.

                    0 The Up Arrow and the Right Shift Key need to be swapped. The Arrow Key needs to be the one furthest to the right, as the Right Shift key is only half-size, causing me to hit "UP" when I mean "Shift". Very annoying.

                    0 The PC compatible "Hot Keys" DO NOT ALWAYS WORK!

                    0 Too many times I have found that the Long-Press Copy, Cut and Paste functions do NOT work with the Hot-Key Ctrl-C, Ctrl-X, and Ctrl-V, basically leaving you with EITHER two copy/paste buffers, OR one way that works, and the other way that doesn't work. Usually it's the keyboard that get's the short end of THAT stick.

                    0 The Case Magnet / Snap fastener emerges from the FRONT Cover, and snaps into a fitting on the BACK Cover. Normally, a fastener is swen into the BACK Cover, and then fastens onto the FRONT cover. Meaning that I often open it backwards to the way I'd intended.

                    0 ALT-F4 "Quit" Hotkey does NOT work.

                     

                    So far, that's 24 positive and 13 negitive, so it's still a really nice keyboard and case.

                     

                     

                    P.S. Has anyone discovered a way to tell how full or empty the battery is, other than when the keyboard starts taking a keystroke and running with itttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt?

                      Also: SANOXY Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad;  from Amazon worked just fine on my new HD, without disabling the pass code.

                       

                      What I have trouble with is the: Mini Wireless Bluetooth Computer Desktop Notebook Laptop PC Optical Mice Mouse - BTM-101; from Amazon

                       

                      It found it but would not connect even with its 0000 pass code.

                      • 53. Re: Bluetooth Keyboards

                        I recently purchased from Amazon a Poetic 9 inch Bluetooth keyboard and case for my nook HD for only $34.95. It has an auto wake sleep function and a 3 year warranty. I read other recommendations here on the blog and I am extremely satisfied with the product. The key board is only an inch and one half smaller then my lap top keyboard. I plugged in the keyboard to charge. Turn-on the Bluetooth on my Nook. Hit the connect button and typed in a password and was connected. I would highly recommend to someone who is looking for keyboard function. It could not have been simpler and I saved quite a few bucks from those I researched from here on the blog. 

                        • 54. Re: Bluetooth Keyboards

                          Well, what do you know! The 2.2.0 update fixes whatever was preventing my HD+ from working with Logitech K810 keyboard. The "enter PIN code" box popped up immediately when I tried (for about the 50th time) to pair the two devices, I entered the PIN, and the keyboard is working well.

                           

                          I didn't see this in the update description, but decided to give it a try anyway (I'm stubborn that way), and am really happy I did.

                            Having trouble with Microsoft Wedge key board not working with Nook HD+
                            • 56. Re: Bluetooth keyboard and mouse that work with Nook HD

                              If you give more details, perhaps someone who has used the Wedge keyboard would be able to respond. Or maybe you could pm someone who has posted that they have successfully used the keyboard and ask them directly.
