    I just got my first iPad (3rd generation) a few days ago. I already had a Verbatim folding BT keyboard. (Doggone it. I can't post links yet. Google "verbatim folding keyboard" and then look at the review from mashable dot com.)

    I got a no-name iPad stand from Five Below (a discount chain in my area that sells various items for $5 or less). While what I really want is a folding case/keyboard combination, now I can take my time about deciding which one I want to invest in, because the folding keyboard/separate stand combination works quite nicely.

    As a touch typist, I'm still acclimating to the placement of a few of the keys, but that's the case any time I switch to a new keyboard. I'm sure I'll develop the reflexes I need to make the keyboard easier to work with.

    One handy thing (IMO) is that it uses two AAA batteries. This means I never have to worry about whether I've remembered to charge the keyboard. All I need is to add a few fresh AAA batteries to the carrying case, and I know I'll always be good to go.

    I no longer remember what I paid for the keyboard, as I bought it some months ago. But it appears to me, after a quick look online, that there are reasonable prices for it on multiple sites.

    One thing that I'm circumventing with an extra piece of equipment: I like to sit on the sofa with a keyboard in my lap. THIS keyboard needs to be on a sturdy flat surface, as the center joint wants to "flex" a little bit when it's on a lap. That might not be an issue for some people, but it was enough to throw my typing off. So I got something flat and sturdy that's big enough to rest the keyboard on in my lap. Problem resolved.

    I just use the on-screen keyboard, and have never had a problem with it. Granted, I could maybe type faster with a physical keyboard, but its just not worth it for me.

    I don't do a whole lot of typing so right now no need for a keyboard. But I would like one...eventually.

    I just purchased the new ipad bluetooth keyboard case from brookstone. It was a bit pricey, but I love it. I had one for my original ipad, and decided to get another one for my new ipad. This case has a removable keyboard, which is great. I can even use the keyboard with my galaxy tab. I thought about getting the apple wireless keyboard, but decided to give this one a try. I also had the apple docking keyboard for my ipad 1, but it doesn't work too well with then new ipad, and I was afraid I would mess up the pins in this ipad trying to dock it.
