Is there a keyboard that splits the keyboard in half - so say in landscape mode, holding iPad2 with two hands and use both thumbs to type.

Please explain your needs - you can 'double thumb' type w/ the virtual keyboard - I'm assuming that you want a 'physical' keyboard that is split in some fashion?

Sorry, just not sure about your question? :(

Yes, an app that splits the keyboard.
With current keyboard, my thumbs don't reach the center (the T,Y,G H,B ) keys.

Unfortunately, there is nothing at this time.

However, iOS 5 is "right around the corner" and the default keyboard is supposed to be able to do this split.

Just got to wait until the fall/Autumn...

In that case, I'll cross my fingers - umm, thumbs.

Thanks.

New to forum. I have a new iPad and today, for some reason, the keyboard won't pop-up. Can't type anything in any app. Have turned on/off several times.

Any thoughts?

Many thanks

My thoughts are that you need to not hi-jack this thread and open your own.;)
