Keyboard For Kindle Fire

Monday, September 9th, 2013 by | Filed Under: Android, eReaders

Shelle from Chillicothe, Ohio writes:

Is there a keyboard that will work with my Kindle Fire? I don’t have the HD, I have the first one.

Shelle, sadly the answer is no. And here’s why: The first generation Kindle Fire does not have a a powered mini-USB port. So if you a plug a keyboard in, there’s no power for it. It also does not have Bluetooth – which would also let you hook up a keyboard to a tablet. Kindle Fire HD tablets do come with Bluetooth, so you can connect them to a keyboard.

I have a Kindle Fire myself and was disappointed to learn about the lack of keyboard options.

    Would a powered hub work? You would be getting the power from the hub not the Kindle Fire.
