    I've just bought my shiny and expensive Apple Wireless Keyboard for my iPad 2. The quality of the keyboard is superb but of course you pay too much for it :twitch: Those Verbatim don't look quite appealing and the $50 price tag is not a great deal but aceptable.

    My Android-based phone has nearly replaced my laptop for when I'm traveling. I've been looking for something like this, but I'm worried it would break easily. It's pretty much plastic, isn't it?

    (Come to think of it, my old Moto Razr was pretty sturdy. Thin can be strong.)

    Everything is. :p

    I see your point though, but that's why you sometimes want to try the keyboards before you buy them. I don't see why it should break so easily though, keyboards are fairly simple constructions that often can stand a bit of mistreatment.
