iPad Keyboards Are Shipping

iPad Keyboards Are Shipping, iPad 3Gs Are Not (Yet)

If you preordered an iPad keyboard dock with your iPad, it should arrive soon. Apparently, iPad keyboards aren't as delayed as previously rumored. And in some cases, the keyboard is arriving before the iPad. Earlier today, my favorite author/tweeter, Susan Orlean, (you might recognize her name from the role played by Meryl Streep in Adaptation, the movie based on her book The Orchid Thief) tweeted: "Is this cruel or what? My iPad KEYBOARD arrived today. iPad? Two more weeks for my 3G model. Grrrr."

Susan, I hear your frustration! It's like unwrapping a brand-new Blu-ray disc you received as a gift but not having a Blu-ray player to watch it with, or getting a fancy new gadget only to find that, no, batteries are not included. According to the Apple site, iPad keyboards ordered today from Apple's online store will ship in late April. iPad 3G models are shipping at the end of the month, so there's only two more weeks to wait. Though sadly, staring at an iPad-less keyboard on a desk won't make it any easier to wait.

Would't it be better to get like the McBook Air instead of an iPad with a keyboard? Just thinking...
