    Just bought one today - what a great little device and compliments the iPad perfectly!

    I downloaded the Pages App a few days ago. Now, I can write letters with the same ease as a desktop. It works with my iPhone too- this makes texting a breeze!

    Highly recommended

    I bought the official Apple one off ebay. There's quite a few new ones on there, from sellers who've bought a new iMac and had one included in the pack. I paid £35 for a new, sealed one.

    If you use your iPad 'out and about' you might want to consider a folding Bluetooth keyboard. Clearly they're not as good for extended typing as the Apple keyboard but they're so compact that it's easy to carry them wherever you go - not something most people would contemplate with the Apple keyboard. I use the Freedom i-Connex keyboard - available from Amazon - which is designed specifically for the iPad and iPhone and has some dedicated keys - such as the Home button. Plus you get all the cursor keys and numerics and symbols right there on the keyboard.

    That's the one and - yes - it comes with that nice pouch and 2 AAA batteries, so you're good to go. It's a bit flimsy and plasticy but it's light and small. I also use the iGo folding Bluetooth keyboard, but I don't think they make that any longer.
