Has anyone used the Thinkpad 2 Bluetooth Keyboard with a non-PC device?

    I'm talking about this particular keyboard:
    ThinkPad Tablet 2 Bluetooth Keyboard with Stand - US English | Lenovo | (US)

    It contains both the Trackpoint (yay!) and, of course, the new Island style Thinkpad Keyboard.

    I'm thinking of getting this keyboard to use with my BlackBerry Playbook (so I don't have to carry around both a BT Keyboard and mouse), but I'm wondering if the Trackpoint will work as a Bluetooth mouse, or if a special PC-based driver is necessary for it to work, and thus making it inoperable on a non-PC based device.

    I'm interested in this as well. But I'd like to use it as a standard bluetooth keyboard/mouse for my livingroom PC (running Ubuntu). Has anyone been able to use this thing with a PC? Without any "special Windows drivers"?
