I’ve been using the iPad a lot since I got it last week. One unexpected positive experience is the built-in keyboard. I wasn’t too hopeful at first since the iPhone keyboard is pretty awful, and not just because of its size. These non-tactile keyboards that don’t give any feedback are generally no fun to use; I find myself hitting either the wrong key because of my fat fingers, or having to go back (not an easy task on iPhone or iPad) and re-insert a missing letter.

But the iPad keyboard is pretty nice; I can type with two fingers at a pretty good clip and it’s a rare occasion if I have to go back and insert a letter because the keyboard missed my input. The “keys” are very ample and it’s almost impossible to hit the wrong one, even with my wide digits.
