If the iPad virtual keyboard is not your thing, don’t give your iPad away just yet… ;-) There is still hope and its name is Apple Wireless Keyboard.

Beautiful and sleek, like all Apple products, this thin and compact keyboard takes less space on your desk than ordinary keyboards, while ridding you of all those tangled wires which seem to never be the correct length.

Here are a few features that we believe make the Apple wireless keyboard superior to its competitors, and the best choice to complement your iPad:

  • Good action range: the keyboard works even at 30 feet distance from your iPad or Mac
  • Intelligent power management system: this new keyboard from Apple requires only two AA batteries, compared to the previous model, which needed three. Yes, the battery life is amazingly long, because the keyboard powers down automatically when not in use and gets activated again as soon as you start typing.
  • One-Touch access keys: the top row on the keyboard is dedicated to special keys which enable instant access to various Mac functions. It is possible that not all of them work with the iPad though.
  • Freedom and uncluttered desk space: thanks to the Bluetooth technology, you don’t have to deal with sitting in less comfortable positions at your desk, as in the case of a wired keyboard or a keyboard dock. With the wireless keyboard, you can lay back in your armchair, take the keyboard on your lap and still type, and all while maintaining a relaxed posture.

The low-profile keys are very responsive and have a soft rubbery texture that feels very good on fingers. It’s true that if you’reĀ  used to a full-size keyboard, you might find this compact one a little strange at the beginning, but taking into consideration the advantages it’s packed with, it’s an excellent iPad accessory for people who need to do any intensive typing, well… If you like to type with more than one finger (which is all I can manage on the iPad screen) then this is for you.
