I bought this LINSAY 10.1 NEW QUAD CORE 1024 x 600 HD Android 4.4 KIT KAT Tablet
http://www.shopyourway.com/linsay.../386572639

and then I bought this Belkin Universal Keyboard & Case for 10" Tablets
http://www.staples.com/Belkin-Uni...ct_1706793

Afterwards,I realized the Linsay tablet does not have bluetooth.Is there anyway to add bluetooth to the Linsay tablet so it can connect to the Belkin Keyboard?

No. You'd have to have a tablet with a USB port, then you'd have to find a Bluetooth adapter that's Android compatible. Nothing like that exists, at least not from what I've seen without a huge amount of hacking. I say return that tablet if you can and get a better known brand that has bluetooth.

It only works with some of the higher end branded tablets that have extra features. Yours is a low end one. I do not believe it will work.

I would agree with this for the most part. In addition that screen resolution of 1024x600 is really low for a 10" tablet. OP will be happier returning it for a better tablet that cost a little more.
