    this is really useless - I mean literally useless - but you CAN connect a PS3 bluetooth wireless keypad if you have one laying around to the apple iPad.

    The typing speed brings back memories of the palm pre and slightly bigger feel than the TMobile DASH (made by HTC). I can actually type faster using my onscreen keypad than this piece of crap but hey, it works!

    Just passing info along...in case some of you are curious. Thanks for looking.

    video on how to sync it:

    1) Turn on your iPad bluetooth
    2) HOLD DOWN BLUE DOT (UPPER LEFT CORNER) of ps3 bluetooth keypad, then power on by flipping the on/off switch to ON position; HOLD the blue corner after powering on until lights flash
    3) tap the connected device in the iPad bluetooth settings
    4) enter in the code written on the dialog box and that's it.

    100% useless on the iPad.
    I wish I could use it for my iPhone though.

    hadn't even thought about the ps3 pad, I have BT stack on my iPhone and use the alu keyboard but this would be an excellent idea!
