    Nothing more to say really, other than it shows up as an unsupported accessory. Sigh.

    Ugh. I just bought an iPad 3 for my mother. She loves the keyboard dock. Damn you Apple - is there a technical reason for this or is it a push toward me having to buy a Bluetooth keyboard as well? Not everyone can type on glass.

    When you get the unsupported message, can you just click on it and then continue to type? When I do a lot of typing I use a mechanical keyboard with the camera connector and iPad. I get the same message but I just click on the "Okay" button to get the message to go away and then my keyboard does work just fine.

    That's the message that means the dock won't charge the iPad, doesn't mean the typing function won't work. That's the way it is with other accessories.
