Can I attach a keyboard to my iPad or iPad mini?

Hi everyone!

I hope you can help me with my problem. You know, I don't have any gadgets such as smart phones and tablets.

I am actually planning to buy an iPad or iPad Mini but I got used to fast encoding using a keyboard. Can I attach a keyboard to my iPad? Is there and iPad where you can insert a simcard and a USB type keyboard.

Or do you know any gadget similar to this where I can attach a keyboard on it? Please help me 'cause I really needed a handy gadget to use for transcription. I find iPad or iPad mini to be the most durable gadget but only needed to know if I can type with it using my usb type keyboard.

Has anyone tried this connecting a keyboard to their tablets and/or any wide touch screen gadget? Just tell me what to do. It would really help me find out or decide what gadgets to buy intended for my work.

I think that you can connect a keyboard via Bluetooth connection.

I am an Android tablet user so I can't tell you for sure about iPad but it should be possible.

Be careful! Connecting a keyboard to an iPad or iPad Mini will cause a disruption in the space/time continuum.

You can buy keyboards for them but I don't know if you could just plug a regular kind in, mind you I have an adapter for my Samsung tablet that turns the charger port into a usb port and I can connect anything with a usb to that including a keyboard, I have a case for mine that has a usb keyboard attached to the case. I am sure you could get a similar adaptor and/or case for an ipad try looking on ebay to see whats available.
