Well i have been playing with my bluetooth keyboard this weekend. I could 
connect it with hidd --connect but unfortunately it does not generate any 
input events (same on PC). So the HW might be broken.

I though it could be quite easy, because input handling is handled by Qt and 
should be quite well documented/tested. The trick should be to correctly set 
QWS_KEYBOARD environment variable - you can google for it. E.g. this [1] link 
looks interesting.

Also on PC HW keyboard worked for me in qtmoko.
