    Default Which keyboard should i get? Apple vs Xoom

    Hmmm...

    Im deciding on a keyboard.

    $58 NEW xoom motorola keyboard
    $43 USED apple keyboard

    my opinions:
    xoom is built for an android tablet and has the keys for quicker access.
    Apple keyboard is thin and sexy at a cheaper price(but used) + it doesnt have android keys.

    Haha I need help deciding on a keyboard.

    If you have any other keyboard ideas that are compatible and cheaper. Tell me!

    I assume you mean the BT iMac keyboard? If that's the case, I'm not a very big fan of them. It looks nice but not very portable at all.

    While I was at a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 demo stand at the Galleria in Houston, TX, they had a BT keyboard that was connected to a tablet case. I didn't even bother to look at the brand at the time, but it looked like that Belkin case, but had the option to attach a keyboard to it and stows away.

    **Matter of fact just found a link with it:

    A case/keyboard combo would be nice, but this tab doesn't have that many accessories available yet:/
    And the apple keyboard I'm taking about is this:
    Amazon.com: Apple Wireless Keyboard (Retail Packaging): Electronics

    I might go with the xoom keyboard or the new logitech android keyboard

    Nice. This is exactly what I was looking for. I hope the price isn't too unreasonable.
    So many phones, so little time.

    Why not the Samsung keyboard dock?

    I wasn't sure because of
    1. price and
    2. I prefer wireless

    If it was bluetooth compatible, I would've thought about it. But, Im sure you can only use it on the dock right?

    I remember reading of people having compatibility issues using the Apple keyboard on Windows computers. I am not sure if there would be any similar issues using it on an android device. Might be something to consider though.

    I ended up getting this:
    Logitech® Tablet Keyboard for Android

    lol, hope I didn't make the wrong choice:]
    I got this over the xoom keyboard because this has a nicer design and has a case/stand included.

    I have both, so note that not all shortcuts work in the moto keyboard. Most do.

    It says preorder, and so does the ipad logitech keyboard, but when you add it to your cart it says "in stock".

    I can find the ipad version at my best buy, but no android keyboard, so I found this on staples.com(ships faster and cheaper than logitech site) and used this coupon for $10 of logitech products.

    Coupon: 4161103181716597

    *note
    the coupon didn't work for me at first, but when i tried it a few hours later, it accepted it.

    I will post details and a quick review of it tomorrow when it arrives

    Default Re: Which keyboard should i get? Apple vs Xoom

    I also got the Logitech Tablet Keyboard for Android. I love it. It was easy to set up and works very well. I have big hands and I can type on it comfortably and accurately. It is very quiet. I has a nice case that doubles as a tablet stand.

    The Logitech Mouse for Android is great, too. With both of these items connected I now have an almost laptop experience and I can still use the touchscreen, too.

    The onscreen keyboard still pops up on certain applications, but I just enter text from the Logitech keyboard and it works fine.
