The Apple Wireless Keyboard (A1255) pairs with Jolla via Bluetooth quickly, without problems. It doesn't seem however to work with any app (Notes, Finger-Term, E-Mail, etc.).

Can support be added for this specific model, as well as for various other wireless Keyboards?

Update: This Question has been converted to a feature-request, a more generic one rather than asking support for only one specific product.

Tried using Logitech K810 wireless BT keyboard, but doesn't work. Pairing works on phone, but it's not recognized by KB. On N9 I also had to use btinput app in order to pair this particular BT keyboard and make it work.

Nokia SU-8W (finnish layout) pairs and works. But as bt keyboard config file supports english only, typing is very frustrating 'cos virtual keyboard tends to get confused. Bug: adding more charachters to a word and underlining part of typed word. Tested on using tinyedit.

Full support is not added yet but it is in the list. You should convert your question to the feature request asking for bluetooth input devices (keyboards etc.) support, so it can be voted for.

why does not have the roadmap tag if it's in the ToDo list? (just asking, not to complain)

Is there a place we can vote for Bluetooth keyboard support?

My bluetooth keyboard (and all such keyborads, probably) now works with Sailfish OS (Saapunki)

Roadmap tag as this issue isn't completed?

No, regular Bluetooth keyboards like the Think Outside Stowaway don't work with the Jolla as well. Bluetooth keyboard support seems to be missing in general.
