Saw that a few weeks ago and I did initially like the idea of connecting a speccy keyboard into the iPad via Blutooth until I read the disturbing reports about the keyboards creator (Elite Systems) having many classic speccy games in the various App Stores where they had not got permission from the original game developers or paid any royalties from the sales of game apps to the original devs:

Shame really, it would have been a good idea, but as a fellow game developer, I wont be touching it >:(

There is a thread a mile long on worldofspectrum concerning the activities of the company. Royalties left unpaid all over.
