    Anyone noticed Apple has a new iPad stand? The keyboard dock is dead!

    What are you talking about? The smart covers?

    I wonder if the keyboard dock is compatible with the new iPad.

    It's still showing in the online store, ships in 1-2 business days, currently.

    Smart covers won't kill the iPad keyboard dock.

    Clue being, Smart covers are neither docks, nor keyboards. Plus smart covers are iPad 2 only. They'll still sell 1st gen stuff.

    Yeah, I've noticed this to. I bought the keyboard dock a few days prior to the iPad 2 launch (yupp, I'm stupid. But I can afford my behaviour :rolleyes:). Fingers crossed that the iPad 2 will fit in the "old" keyboard dock...

    #6 with the keyboard dock dead, how about Apple actually use all the f-keys on Bluetooth keyboards?

    I was thinking this exact thing earlier today. Apple eliminated the keyboard dock, and are actively showing the Bluetooth keyboard as an iPad 2 accessory. One would think they would update 4.3 to better take advantage of all the buttons. I wonder if anyone can try it with 4.3. If not, it is certainly something they should "button up" (pun intended)
