This seems rather difficult to do. How do you manage to do it?
one finger at a time.
In portrait orientation I just use my thumbs or hold the iPad in one hand and type with the other. I don't find it difficult.
I want the option to use an on-screen keyboard the size of an iPhone. It would be great for us that type with one finger.
I want the option for a five row keyboard (numbers on top row), with cursor and tab keys.
It really bugs me the you can't tab from field to field when filling out forms.
I use my fingers instead of my toes.
You can press return on the keyboard or the next button above the w key to go from field to field.
I save the typing for when I'm sitting down. But if it's just a Google search or something, one finger in portrait.
There are also some iPad sleeves which have a slot or something on the back (slot is not the right word, but can't think right now), to put one hand to hold the devise while the other hand types. I'm thinking of the one from mar-ware, but I know the are others. I don't own it but it seems like a nice idea if you need to stand and type.
The apple store in pentagon city is using ipads for genius bar check ins and floor help check ins. in both cases, the person used it standing up. i didnt pay all that much attention at the time but both seemed to be typing in fine though i cant imagine composing lengthy messages in that manner
You have to squat and spread your legs pretty far to avoid splash...
Hold the iPad with one hand and type with the other hand. Very easy, convenient, and fast.
If we can learn one thing from CrackBerry addicts, it's that walking and typing is dangerous.
I type with my thumbs in portrait.
Two thumbs while holding it in portrait.
Think of the iPad as a snare drum. Give it a little time and you'll be able to buy an iPad harness so the iPad can float in front of you with both hand free to type.

Gotta love that.
Find illustrations of that crazy position and more in the good book:
A guy told me the other day that he is thinking about putting Velcro on the back of the iPad and then sewing Velcro to a lightweight glove because he walks around the office all day with the iPad balanced on the palm of his hand while typing with the other.
He was serious.
there are cases that you can hold it with your hand in that manner
Well the best thing for typing standing up was buying the zagg protector it really add stickiness to the back so I can rest the iPad in the palm of one hand. Now for the typing part I had a book teaching one hand typing which now proves itself really useful.
Type standing up? For the men here: Bed & Bath stores will start selling an iPad mount for the toilet tank top, and another that can be mounted on commercial/public bathroom urinals.
Here are 2 cases that have this sort of hand strap:
