Apple wireless keyboard with the Nokia E5

Hi there! It may not seem so, but this post is going to be about love! Nokia-Apple love to be precise. 🙂

I’m going to show you how to connect your Apple wireless keyboard with your brand new Nokia E5. All you need to do, prior to connecting these great devices, is to download a small piece of software for your Nokia phone. The app is called Wireless keyboard, and it’s a free download from the official Nokia site. Depending on your phone, select the appropriate version – if you have the N82 (or any FP1 device) or N97 Mini (or any touchscreen Nokia) select the s60 3.1 version, and if you have the E5 (or other FP2 devices) download s60 3.2 version. If you have the E71/E63, you already have this installed, so you can skip this step.

So, when you install the application, you’re good to go! Again, depending on your Nokia, this app will be located in the Menu->Tools->Connectivity (FP1 phones) or Menu->Applications (touchscreen phones) or Menu->Applications->Installations (FP2 phones).

When you locate the app icon, launch the application, and you’ll see the following screen.

Now, you need to switch the Apple keyboard on. Just press the button from the right-hand side of keyboard, and you’ll see a little green light show up.

OK, now, click “Options->Find keyboard” on your Nokia phone.

Wait a few moments, until you see the list of available Bluetooth devices. Select Apple Wireless Keyboard, and you’ll be at the following screen:

Press “OK”, and type in any numerical code you like on your Nokia, for example “0000”.

Now you have to type in the exact same code on your Bluetooth keyboard. When you do so, press the “Enter” key on the keyboard and you’ll see the following screen:

Congratulations! That wasn’t so hard, was it? 😀

You can use the Apple Wireless Keyboard to control your Nokia mobile phone, using directional arrow keys (up, down, left and right), type long emails with ease, and navigate through menus by clicking “Cmd” keys on the keyboard.

As you can see, Nokia and Apple can live and work together in a prefect symbiosis, we just need to spread the love. Help me do this by clicking Tweet button, or any other from the list below. 😀
