If you do need a keyboard for an iPad there are some slip cover cases
with built in rubber or plastic bluetooth keyboards. In a medical
environment I would have thought the ability to easy wipe down the iPad
would be good. I'm sure most people would adjust to typing on the screen
in time.

Solution is obvious - when as a fanboi you upgrade to the New iPad, you
can use your Old iPad as a keyboard :)

But what about my third iPad? Can I use that as a hat perhaps to keep
the rain off?
