I don't have a bluetooth keyboard or mouse here to test, but  
allegedly support for them was added in the 1.6 update some time ago  
(PS3 is now at firmware 2.1 or so). I can't, however, find any  
confirmation that these devices (with a standard HID) work with the  
PS3 - perhaps one or two forum posts saying "this keyboard works ok",  
but there appears to have been at least one designed-for-PS3 keyboard  
released (by Logitech, and it was in development before 1.6).

"Rest assured that there is absolutely no chance of a dangerous  
equipment malfunction prior to your victory candescence."
