    Changes to the iPad 2 keyboard?

    I am not sure if this has been discussed, but are there changes to the iPad 2 virtual keyboard?

    I am sticking with my first gen for now, but something that I always wanted to see on the keyboard was arrow keys for moving my cursor around.

    I am also interested in any other low-key changes if you stumble upon them.

    It will be the same keyboard as an iPad 1 with iOS 4.3. So far any changes have been so insignificant I can't spot them.

    Thanks for that, another reason I am waiting for the next release. I am such a crappy typist that I REALLY need the arrow keys, so I am happy with my iPad 1st gen for now.

    The keyboard has nothing to do with the iPad hardware, it's driven by the OS (it's just software). Apple could easily change it with an OS update any time they want, they don't need to wait for a new model release.

    The iPad 1 keyboard won't work with the iPad 2 (it's been checked) and also won't charge either. I heard on some tech news that Apple won't make a Apple iPad 2 keyboard dock.
