An elderly neighbor just got an iPad and she really loves it, especially
receiving e-mail from her kids, grand-kids, and great-grandkids.
 Unfortunatly due to arthritis, she can't really use the on-screen keyboard.

She *is* still able to use larger physical keyboards, but all of the
bluetooth equipped keyboards I've seen are very small, no tactile feed-back,
and have small lettering.

I'm toying with purchasing a high-visiblity keyboard (

blue-tooth "box" that will take the keyboard and make it available to the

Has anyone seen such a box?
