I have a tablet computer HP TouchPad with WebOS 3. I want to pair a Bluetooth mouse with my touchpad.

But before I go out and buy on I'd like to know from other ppl if that even works and how did you manage to do it?

Hi Hunter,

Yes it is possible.

Any model of Bluetooth mice/mouse is compatible to any Bluetooth device/radio used by different tablets OS.

Just make sure that when pairing, 4-digit code must be the same.

Usually, it is recommended to go at the near HP Shops and inquire for best advisory about the right device to use. 

STEPS TO PAIR BLUETOOTH MICE/MOUSE TO TABLET:

  • Go to Settings Application
  • Touch Wireless & Networks > Bluetooth Settings
  • If turned off, check Bluetooth on. Automatically, it will scan any Bluetooth devices IDs near the parameter. If there were no devices searched, touch search devices.
  • If the device you want to pair with is missing, be sure that the BTM is turned on. See the pamphlet together with the device for the steps in how to make it discoverable and steps for pairing it to computer/tablet.
  • Touch the Bluetooth pairing code of the BTM in the list found to pair them. Usually, pairing code is "1234" or "0000".

A wireless mouse literally doesn’t need to be paired with a computer to work. When you buy a wireless mouse, the package contains two items excluding the battery: the USB Bluetooth or wireless adapter and the mouse itself. Sometimes when you buy a wireless mouse, the battery is not included. You have to buy it separately. But there are wireless mouse that includes the battery in the package.

The wireless mouse I purchased before is basically just the mouse without the battery. To use the wireless mouse on your computer, first, install the battery on the mouse then you have to plug the USB adapter to an available USB port on your computer. There is a switch at the bottom of the mouse to turn it on or off.

To use it, just turn the switch on then the mouse should connect automatically to your computer with its USB adapter. You don’t need to manually pair it. Now, if you want to use it on a tablet, you have to check if the tablet supports a standard USB 2.0 port.

If your tablet supports microUSB 2.0 port, you have to find a wireless mouse that supports microUSB 2.0 because standard wireless mouse supports USB 2.0. On the other hand, you can buy a microUSB 2.0 OTG data cable separately to allow you to connect the USB adapter of the mouse to the tablet. This setup will allow you to use a wireless mouse on your tablet.
