SlashGear is reporting that the iPad Keyboard Dock won’t be shipping until mid-April, unlike most other official accessories which are due to be shipped at launch on April 3rd. You can still pre-order the dock from Apple though, you just won’t get it the same time as all your other stuff. Looking at the official specs, the dock looks like a good buy at $69.00. Aside from using it as a keyboard, the dock can also be used for syncing and charging, as well as being compatible with other iPad accessories such as the iPad Camera Connection Kit. It also of course acts simply as a stand for the iPad, holding it at the optimum angle to watch videos. The keyboard itself is made of anodized aluminum, and includes special custom keys for one-touch access to various iPad features such as the Home Screen, Spotlight search, and picture frame mode.
