    iPad usage with multiple separate Bluetooth Devices simultaneously?

    Is it possible to use a BT Keyboard and BT Speaker with iPad at the same time?
    e.g. Listening to music on BT Speaker using iPad/ iPod, while typing other apps on the iPad with BT Keyboard.

    Can the above be done on iPhone?

    Or

    BT Keyboard with BT Headset?

    Talk over VoiceChat/VoIP App using BT Headset and Typing notes using BT Keyboard at the same time/ simultaneously?

    Simultaneously?

    You can use more than bluetooth peripheral with the iPad. However, it can only send audio to one set of speakers with AirPlay.

    Same story with the iPhone & iPod.

    Thats fine as long as long as DIFFERENT bluetooth devices with different FUNCTIONS can be used together.

    BTW - Doesnt Airplay work over WiFi? and not Bluetooth?

    It's accessed in the same way as Bluetooth. On my phone, my headset and AppleTV appear under the same popup and I can only select one for streaming.
