    External keyboard recommendations?

    I love everything about my new IPad except the virtual keyboard. As a touch typist I find one finger typing a pain! What external keyboard do you use? Where did you buy it? Cost? Thanks for any help.

    It depends on where you plan on typing.

    If it is mainly at a desk, I can only recommend the Apple Bluetooth keyboard.

    But if move around a lot and want the smallest footprint possible, look for some foldable bluetooth keyboards. The keys are not much fun to type on, but if the only other choice would be no keyboard at all, it may be worth it.

    Personally I find the Apple keyboard somewhat large, especially when compared to the iPad 2. But it is the smallest full keyboard with keys you can type on for hours. Price is around 60 pounds.

    I have a Zagg mate. It is a combo keyboard/stand/aluminum cover that is padded on the inside.
    Got it at Best Buy $80
    Its bluetooth and the battery lasts a long long time .I charged mine after 3 weeks and it wasn't in need of one yet.

    Or you could buy the Camera Connector Kit and use it to connect your existent USB keyboard.

    Thanks for the replies. I ended up getting the Apple at Best Buy. I looked at the Zaggmate for IPad 1 but did not like the smaller size of the keyboard. It also seemed a little lower quality than the Apple to me, but who knows. Anyway, I also got the Incase origami folding keyboard case that holds the keyboard and also acts as a stand while typing. Nice combo!
