    There are several things to consider, but the short answer for most people is: no, it has too many drawbacks.

    The keyboard dock is only designed for the iPad 1 and only lets you to use the iPad in portrait mode.

    It combines a stand with a keyboard, but since it is not foldable, it is rather bulky and difficult to carry around. And if you happen to use the iPad with a case, it will most likely not fit, meaning you have to first take the iPad out of it's case to place it on the keyboard dock.

    If you are looking for a keyboard solution, you might be better off with either a Bluetooth keyboard, or a case such as the Zaggmate with inbuild keyboard.
