Apple Wireless Keyboard

Verge Review

As much as we like the iPad, one of its greatest strengths is also one of its greatest weaknesses: it lacks a hardware keyboard. On an iPhone, you're mostly typing out texts so we don't mind the software keyboard, but for word processing, the iPad is frustrating, to say the least. Dozens of companies have taken a shot at producing keyboards for iPad — some of them are part of a hard case, some attach to the iPad as a Smart Cover, and some are simply Bluetooth keyboards you can pair with....

    Great keyboard, works like a charm. Good buttons, nice feel and a great design. To bad not every function key has a action on the iPad. Use it almost every day and battery life is good enough (could be better of course). It has a great form factor for typing a long time.
    Bad point: Connecting sometimes takes a long time, range isn't great either.

    Nice keyboard design, good to type on - when it works but bad power on/off design. Lots of problems connecting it to my iPad - most likely because I use it for my iPad and my MacBook Pro. Biggest problem is that it is hard to tell if the keyboard is powered on/off properly. It also gets turned on a lot in my backpack - which is really frustrating when you are trying to use your iPad without the keyboard. (Keyboard connects from the backpack and you have to turn off Bluetooth or forget the keyboard to type.)
