I beg to differ.
You can use a regular keyboard with the camera connection kit, I have been using one for more than a year.
The proviso is that you do not get any of the functions of a cursor or the back / forward keys but these functions can easily be carried out by using the touchscreen. I find it a lost easier to write long documents using a usb keyboard as I am used to touch typing so an external keyboard is a lot faster than using the iPad screen.
