    I just got an iPad mini for Mother's Day. I previously had a Kindle HD. With this, I have the opp to use it at work and would like a keyboard, however I won't be using the keyboard all the time at home. Maybe sometimes, but it will also be used a lot to read and I don't want the added bulk. I'd like a removable keyboard but I want to be able to use the iPad in both horizontal and vertical positioning. Therefore, the ipad would have to be rotatable, or connected by velco, and the keyboard would need to be removable too, since I would not need it all time. Any thoughts?

    I have to say, in looking at several forums for the Ipad; and looking at forums for other tablets (Nexus, Galaxy, Kindle, etc), users of the the iPad forums are the least helpful and very arrogant. Why can't anyone just make some suggestions instead of insulting someone? If I had bought this based on the quality of the users and not the product, I would have chosen something else.

    Hi, aliasfan4! Welcome to iPF!

    I'm really sorry that your first impression of this community isn't the best one. Normally, the moderators and members are very helpful and friendly.

    I don't use a separate keyboard with my mini, but have seen many people like to use a bluetooth keyboard for prolonged typing. That and a 36o degree rotatable case should do the trick - this is the case I have. It cost me £7.85 (about US$10.00) including postage from Ebay

    Welcome! I hope you love your Mini as much as I do. It is so portable, and also such a good tool for basic work!

    I use the Logitech BT keyboard with my Mini. When I don't use it I just carry it in a soft bag. However, a rotating case would be your best bet to be able to support it vertically or horizontally. Sorry, I have no experience with those.

    I have a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard for my mini. I don't have to remove my portfolio cover to us it
    in landscape. I've never tried it in portrait but I'm sure it will work. I got mine on eBay for $40.
