Android devices aren’t usually associated with physical keyboards. But, since Google is now bundling their QuickOffice app with the newly-released Kit-Kat, it appears inevitable that at least some Android tablets (particularly 10-inch models) will take on more productivity roles.

I have a wireless USB keyboard. Any idea how I can use that?

Find a USB to mini-USB adapter and see if android can work with it.

You will probably need a powered usb hub to supply power to the wireless adapter which will need a usb to micro usb converter to plug into the tablet.

Eh, it's a phone, not a tablet. And the phone doesn't support USB OTG.

Hi. This is a timely subject. Does anyone know how to activate Android voice-to-text while a Bluetooth keyboard is paired? This would be the same function you can activate with the "Microphone" button on the virtual keyboard. My son, who struggles with dyslexia, needs to be able to use both the keyboard and the voice recognition function within the same document on his HP TouchPad (running CM 10.1 experimental w/BT support).
