I don't have a problem with the iPad keyboard per se, but it's handy to have a bit larger one if you do a lot of typing, and very handy to have it inside the case when you need it. I suppose there is a price for convenience, but I'm not quite willing to pay it...yet.</p>

I don't know, $90 for a BT keyboard and case seems reasonable to me.

In my quest to make the iPad more 'work friendly,' this looks good to me, even at that price. The form factor means that I can (or could, if it ever makes it out of Europe) shove it in my bag while traveling, leaving the BT keyboard at home. And/or the bulky one-piece dock/keyboard.

Looks pretty cool to me - and the $90 price tag isn't too bad considering you're getting a Bluetooth keyboard in there...
