    Don't like it one bit tbh.It was a novelty at first but it soon wore off for me.

    I don't mind it - I use it for email and forums and the like, but I use my MBP for writing papers.

    I like using it for forums, emails and FB etc and it is nice and clear, but I would prefer to type properly on a real keyboard for very long documents.

    I'm one of the few so far who really love it! I didn't have great expectations for the virtual keyboard when I bought my iPad but I must say, I'm really surprised how good it is, no matter how long the document I'm writing. Ah, nearly forgot - I use it almost exclusively in landscape position. THIS makes all the difference IMO. I see no need whatsoever to go to the additional expense of a Bluetooth keyboard.

    not anyone mentioned that iOS 5 will bring split screen keyboard, basically the keys will be closer to your reach.
    Waiting for that “Next Thing” means you’d never buy anything.

    For some unexplainable reason, I still find it pretty fun to type on the onscreen keyboard, even though I'm more used to touch typing. For longer documents, I have my laptop, but I don't mind using the onscreen keyboard for short comments, or when I'm too lazy to take out the laptop.

    Barely better than nothing. I especially hate typing a whole paragraph without looking up only to find a mistake in the middle and having to go back and position that damn little magnifying glass just so between words or letters. Aaaarrrrgggg!!!

    I like it. Perfect spacing for my two finger typing method.

    Using keyboard in landscape mode makes typing very easy and I type for a living!
