Can I connect to keyboards, mice, and other devices?

Created on
  1. You can connect a keyboard, mouse, or other input devices to your Wikipad via microUSB or Bluetooth and use it just as you would with a PC.
  2. You may need an adapter to connect the keyboard or other devices to the microUSB port. To connect more than one USB device at a time, use a powered USB hub to reduce the drain on your Wikipad’s battery.
  3. You pair and connect Bluetooth input devices to your Wikipad in the same way as any other Bluetooth device like a headset or speaker. Just go to "Settings" and hit the "Bluetooth" button and Wikipad will search for your device.  Be sure that your device is in pairing mode so the Wikipad can find it and attempt to pair.

Keyboards

  1. In addition to entering text, you can use your keyboard to navigate your Wikipad’s features:
    1. Use the arrow keys to select items on screen
    2. Pressing Return when an item is selected is equivalent to touching that item
    3. Pressing Escape is equivalent to touching Back
  2. Press Tab or Shift-Tab to move from field to field in a form or other screen with multiple text fields.

 Mice

  1. When you connect a mouse to your Wikipad and move the mouse, an arrow-shaped cursor appears, just as on a computer:
    1. Use the mouse to move the cursor
    2. Clicking, pressing, and dragging with the mouse button are equivalent to touching, touching & holding, and dragging with your finger
    3. Only one mouse button is supported
    4. If your mouse has a trackball or scroll wheel, you can use it to scroll both vertically and horizontally
