Solved Connecting two Bluetooth devices

Specs: Android KitKat, 32gig External
I have a Sony Xperia Z2 tablet and at present I have a Waproo Bluetooth keyboard paired with it and the setup is perfect.

However I intend to pair a Bluetooth LG Pocket Printer to the same tablet. My question therefore is can two Bluetooth devices bet paired with the same tablet. I have heard all sorts of conflicting stories in this connection and I am beginning to wonder what is correct.

I have been told that Bluetooth only supports one channel and therefore only one device can be used at a time but my concern is that if two devices are present will the settings on either device be upset?

All help appreciated,

Regards

✔ Best Answer
Yes, several Bluetooth devices can be connected to a single host. (For example, I connect a Bluetooth keyboard, mouse and speakers to my Mac Mini, and sometimes an Android tablet also. But this doesn't mean that your tablet will, necessarily, work with your printer; if it does then it will work with the keyboard connected.

Thank you ijack that is encouraging news! At one pont you say that this does not neccessarily mean that the tablet will not work with the printer. Did you mean that the printer may not work with the tablet? You go on to say that if it does then it will work with the keyboard connected. Not that I'm likely to use the two together.

It may sound an odd question but although I can find my way in Windows Android and Linux have got me foxed and I dead scared of mucking up something that I can'easily repair.

Thanks and regards

Yes. I meant that the tablet may not be able to use the printer. I'm a bit hazy about printing with Android devices but it is certainly true of iPads that printing is only supported on particular printers. Whatever happens, you will not damage your device by trying.

Thank you for your advice it is very much appreciated. I don't have the printer yet (it's an eBay job) and it only gets here in about a fortnight. I have my post bookmarked and I'll get back to you with the results.

Thanks again and regards
