    Just received a folding Bluetooth Freedom Pro keyboard as a gift. I've only used it a little bit, but so far liking it.

    Pros:
    -folds to a nice compact size
    -pairs as easily as my Microsoft Bluetooth 6000 keyboard
    -keys are normal size
    -nice click (not squishy), but not super clicky like the ones back in the early 90s

    Cons:
    -not all function keys work (expected since you can't install drivers on the iPad) but the important ones to me do work: Play/Pause, Home button, Volume up/down, arrow keys.

    I'm getting used to the split Space bar.

    I couldn't justify buying it because I already have the MS Bluetooth 6000 keyboard and I don't even use that. But I got this as a gift and I have to say, I might use a keyboard more!

    If you're on the fence, I give it a thumbs up! (I give the MS Bluetooth 6000 a thumbs up too).

    I like that it can be folded up for portability but at 120.00 that is a little hard to swallow. I have the Apple BT keys and that is nice to take with and was only 69.00. The 6000 is strictly a office key board.

    A certain online retailer starting with 'A' and is based in Seattle has it for $90. Is $120 the price direct from the Freedom Pro company?

    What is sad is that they believe all that effort is worthwhile........

    I liked the freedom keyboard, but I never used it. I found that if I really needed to type something I just waiting until I got to a computer, or I actually had a computer with me. I sold it to a friend.
