Apple better come up with one soon. For business/productivity use (ex. Spreadsheets) and for remote connect to a desktop a mouse would be great. Otherwise the iPad is great. The last missing link in making it a true business capable machine.

The iPad does not support any kind of mouse.

No. The iPad has no GUI mouse functionality but the blue tooth Apple keyboard works nicely with apps which allow text entry.

While anything is possible, I strongly doubt it, as this would require having a mouse pointer on the iPad screen. Apple would have also announced this if it was the case.

I believe that if there is a sane argument for the bluetooth keyboard as posted above it should account for the mouse as well. The Ipad also comes with a build in keyboard, which should eliminate the need for a keyboard. Get into the zone Apple and fix this ASP. A mouse is far more precise than my big finger.
I love the ipad for work because of the small weight and volume, and the long batterytime and would love to have the extra feature that a mouse would bring to it

The iPad doesn't have an on screen pointer to control, so the no mouse works with it. This includes the Magic Mouse. The ideal keyboard is probably the keyboard dock as it positions the screen to it is easy to move between the keyboard and touching the display (though the iPad has to be connected "portrait style").

I'm a little annoyed because the Apple employee who sold me keyboard and mouse asssured me that both worked. Keyboard works great, the mouse is a $70 paperweight.

No it does not becuse a ipad is a touchscreen so you dont need one and what is the point of it. I would love to have a mouse to do that but sadly it does not :(

The iPad does not use a cursor so the Magic Mouse does isn't compatible.

The iOS devices do not have a cursor on-screen, thus a mouse cannot be used. These devices do have an "insertion point", but this is not a cursor.

It'll never work because there is no mouse pointer on the iPads screen

Well because the iPad is touch screen, so naturally there wouldnt be a curser for the mouse to move around. The iPad can detect the Keyboard because you can type on iPad.

No because iPad is a tablet not a laptop or computer

The answer is, no, no mouse will work with the iPad, that's why it is a touch screen; you don't need a mouse. :)

Since the wireless Bluetooth Keyboard works, I am hoping the Magic Mouse works as well.
