Easier iPad Input: Wireless Keyboards

Maybe you're amongst the group who doesn't like the touchscreen iPad's keyboard and misses a physical keyboard. No need to feel alone, these manufacturers are working hard to bridge the gap between tablet and laptops with a few add-on wireless keyboards for easier text input...

ClamcaseThe Clamcase keyboard/case is amongst our recommended keyboards because it auto-wakes and sleeps your iPad. Offering 4 unique positions with hard case "like" durability, which adds a layer of protection while on the go. The keyboard is a full QWERTY unit and the battery is a long lasting one. The Clamcase practivally converts the iPad into an even slimmer little brother of the MacBook Air.

Keycase iPad Folio Deluxe
The Keycase Folio Deluxe for the iPad allows you to carry your iPad with a built-in Bluetooth keyboard. The silicone padding is very soft to the touch and will protect the battery and the keyboard from the typical accidental latte spills. The keyboard lasts 45 hours per charge and is rechargeable through a USB cable.

Apple iPad Keyboard Dock
This is the easiest way to sync, charge and use a physical keyboard at the same time. This is ideal if you love your desktop's keyboard already and don't mind paying the Apple's tax. It provides you with a perfect angle for typing but it's fixed, so you either love it or hate it. One thing that we wish it had, is the ability to type in landscape mode.

Freedom Pro Keyboard
This is not an exclusive iPad Keyboard but since it's equipped with Bluetooth, we've included it in the mix. It uses only two AAA batteries and it has an LED light to display power and the connection status. The keyboards comes with some dedicated keys: answer call, end/reject call, (which you'll never use on the iPad) open email/message, etc. The Freedom Pro works with any device with Bluetooth, so it's a little more versatile than the iPad dedicated ones above.
