Problem with Bluetooth Keypad Jan 07, 2013
I recently ordered a BearMotion Portfolio Case for my new Kindle HD 8.9. The porfolio arrived within just a couple of days and it is quite nice. Good quality construction, and cut to fit all of the ports/web cam etc on the Kindle. The removable keypad makes it great as a reader too.
The Bluetooth keypad had limited, but clear instructions and after only one or two fumblethumbed attempts on my part began to work great....other than haveing to touch the kindle screen for some of the save/send etc commands it really turns the Tablet into a pretty versatile mini laptop.
Then, after several days of usage the keypad stopped functioning.....I spoke with Kindle support who tried their best, but couldnt seem to help me. Finally I happened to find the email address of the supplying company ProEbiz....one email from me to ask for help, one email from them with suggested diagnostic, one more from me says bluetooth device was not being recognized by my cell phone, or kindle and these nice folks decided to go ahead and replace the problem pad. Great customer service, great courtesy, and a company that I would recommend to my friends and plan to buy from in the future.

works great; very nice case Jan 05, 2013
--SO much easier than the on-screen keyboard.
--This is one of the two most responsive, involved merchants on Amazon whom I have encountered. The other, if you have a cat, is PetFusion.
--Linked quickly and easily to Kindle Fire, and with desktop PC, which is a first for me. I never have luck with bluetooth connections
--I have a wireless keyboard and mouse for my PC. They work off the same dongle. Yet, when I paired this keyboard to my PC via bluetooth, there was no interference, even though I was using the wireless mouse with this bluetooth keyboard (if that makes sense). I was concerned that there might be interference, but this little keyboard just typed away like a champ. Conceivably I could replace the larger wireless keyboard with this tiny one, although I doubt I'll ever be able to type fast on this. I have limited space, so it would be nice to get by with this tiny keyboard.
--Case is well designed and attractive.
--Kindle Fire is easy to insert into case, but it's still held firmly. Fire is surrounded by case material, so its sides are not exposed, except for ports and buttons and speakers. Everything is perfectly squared.
--Outer surface of case has enough texture to grip, but it still slides easily in and out of purse or briefcase.
--Magnet closure is quick and convenient
--Stand is nicely made and sturdy. I was impressed by the stand's appearance and structure. When folded down, it's flush with the case surface. It has an elegant little cloth pulltab that is also flush with the case.
--Key arrangement is as close to "normal" as is reasonably possible. No learning curve, except for touch typing.
--No space and weight wasted on borders, trim, decorations, etc. This is what I liked about this keyboard and case just from looking at pictures of it on Amazon's product page.
--Key press feel is about normal
--All-black, simple design is classy.
--Charging cord is nice and short. Charges great on the Amazon rapid charger sold as an accessory to these new HD Fires.
--Very good price for such a high quality product.
--Comes with a handy foam insert that fits the Fire compartment perfectly, if you prefer to use a different cover for the Fire and just carry the keyboard when it will be needed.
Not-really-cons; more like what to expect of this size keyboard:
--Like any tiny bluetooth keyboard made to match the size of a Kindle Fire, the keys are more crowded than a standard keyboard.
--Naturally, carrying around a keyboard and Fire in one case is heavier than just the Fire.
--Because of the slightly more crowded key layout, I make some typos and don't type just right sometimes, so a keystroke will be missed. I'll get the hang of it.

Great buy Dec 22, 2012
By Peter T.
Excellent case for the price. It fits the Kindle Fire (8.9 in.) well, looks good and functional. The keyboard and sleep/wake function work. Seems durable. A little thick and heavy with the Kindle in it (over 1 inch thick) due to the keyboard, but I'm happy with the purchase.

First product video review Jun 11, 2013
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R1W58IXV22TR4 This is my first time doing a video review so please forgive the quality
**Update: What I forgot to mention in the video is I really wish Bear Motion would install a pocket to hold a stylus, since there is space on the right side of the case.

For Kindle Fire HD 8.9 Jan 06, 2013
I went with the Kindle Fire HD because of the option to sync a bluetooth keyboard to it, but I did not want to pay $100 for the official / recommended keyboard Amazon offers and then pay additionally for a case. That is such a rip off in comparison to this product.
This thing is great. Its a perfect fit and doesn't add a significant amount of bulk in my opinion. Its a little heavier, yes, but its a great set up for a tablet + keyboard + case. It comes with easy instructions and syncs quickly and easily. It doesn't have any of the problems that I've read about in other reviews of keyboards when synced to a kindle. And the battery life lasts a really long time.
Overall, really great buy. Highly recommended. One of my best Amazon finds.
