    My wife had an iPad 1 and I have an iPad 2.

    Can we share the same wireless keyboard (not at the same time, of course)

    Yes, you can. However, you'll have to turn off bluetooth (or "unpair") one iPad before trying to use it with the other.

    I can speak for the Zagg mate. It only pairs with 1 device. To use a second device you have to do a pair
    I would look and see on a keyboard are interested in if it supports multi pair, not multi point. Multi pair is paired to more than one device but only connects one at a time . Multi point , mostly on bluetooth earpieces, is paired to multiple devices and connected to at least 2 at a time.
    Paired is when one bluetooth device remembers another, whether connected or not.

    I have the same exact situation with multiple ipads but only want one keyboard to not clutter up my desk. I have an iPad mini, Macbook and my girlfriend has an Ipad 1. I just ordered the Logitech Solar Keyboard that lets you pair multiple devices to one keyboard and lets you switch by clicking a function key. Once my keyboard ships, I'll post an update to see how it works.

    Here's the link on Amazon: Amazon.com: Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 for Mac/iPad/iPhone (920-003884): Computers & Accessories

    This is the one I saw in BestBuy a few weeks go. Looks good, and switches between 3 devices. I was tempted, but already have the Apple BT keyboard.
