    I am getting a tablet for a family member to replace their laptop computer. They do a fair amount of word processing and composing emails, so they do need a Bluetooth keyboard to use whenever they are at their desk. I found a great Logitech keyboard that I think would work really well. However I'm not sure what to do about a mouse. I would think it would be very inconvenient if they are at their desk to have to reach over and touch the tablet whenever they need to highlight a section of text or to do a lot of scrolling, or anything of that nature. It would seem to be a good idea to have a mouse right beside the keyboard. However, they are so used to using the touchpad on their laptop that they want a touchpad for their tablet rather than a mouse. But I cannot really seem to find any touchpads that I know for sure would would even work with the tablet. Any suggestions?

    By the way, I did find this keyboard, but I'm not sure if it's even compatible with a tablet:

    I have this Bluetooth mouse, which works just fine: Amazon.com: Motorola 89519N Bluetooth Mouse: Computers & Accessories

    The Logitech keyboard you linked to is wireless (i.e., uses a wireless USB adapter), not Bluetooth, so it probably wouldn't work with the tablets unless they had full sized USB ports. You want something more like this: Amazon.com : IOGEAR Multi-Link Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad GKM611B (Black/Grey) : Computer Keyboards : Electronics

    Thanks for that suggestion. I did see that keyboard before and it sounds really nice. However, I have no way of knowing if it would actually work with the tablet they will be getting. This seems to be the only way to have a tablet compatible touch pad, so it's either that or a keyboard and mouse.

    It ought to work. It specifies that it can work with smartphones (and therefore tablets) that support Bluetooth HID devices, and all reputable devices do. Here's the actual manufacturer's product page: IOGEAR - GKM611B - Multi-Link Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad
