Apple wireless keyboard . . . Works great with iPad2

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

I've seen it but is it slim, compact and has backlit?

Would you recommend a 3rd-party one?

The Apple wireless keyboard is not backlighted. As for recommending a keyboard for the iPad, go to this LINK.

Would have been helpful (and narrowed down your answers CONSIDERABLY) if you'd mentioned all those extra requirements right out of the gate. Just sayin'.

If you buy an Apple Bluetooth Keyboard for your iPad, I'd suggest this case for it

Origami Workstation for iPad and Wireless Keyboard by Incase (cheap!)

If you prefer a portfolio-style case that has a BT keyboard built into it, this one looks to be the best one around:

I'd recommend the ZaggKeys Profolio+ case with bluetooth keyboard. It's slim, doesn't add much weight or bulk and the keyboard is backlight. In addition to that, you can choose between six different colors when backlighting the keyboard. It comes with a micro-USB cord to USB cord and can plug into any standard USB plug for your phone or into your computer.

I'd recommend the Logitech Ultrathin keyboard. It works as a smartcover/keyboard. Super slim. Amazon.com: Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover Black for iPad 2 and iPad (3rd/4th generation) (920-004013): Computers & Accessories
