FWIW, I sometimes get duplicate keystrokes on my Nokia BT keyboard.  It seems to either occur or not, and I hafve not tracked down the root cause yet.  However, I suspect it is related to high CPU usage, so your friend might want to check out whether the USB host mode is causing the tablet to work extra hard.

This is what I use, and I spend the bulk of my time ssh'd into my server from my tablet.    My speed has definitely improved, and I find my typ[ing habit changing somewhat, for example, I'll type out numbers instead of using the number keys.  And my left pinky has become pretty adept at hitting the Fn key for switching between screens.

good luck,

In Vino Veritas
