While the iPad is primarily a content consumption device, it’s certainly not lacking keyboard options. There’s the onscreen keyboard (portrait and landscape), the optional external keyboard dock ($69), and the iPad Case ($39) that folds back to prop up the device for a more comfortable pecking position.
In the video below, we tested all of the above. While the on-screen keyboards work fairly well, they do take a bit of getting used to. We found it was easier to use our thumbs–smart phone style–on the portrait keyboard. But the landscape keyboard is decent when you’re using the iPad on a table or in your lap.
