Can I use this keyboard with the new iPad(3rd gen)?
I've bought a new iPad. Does this work with it?

A warning: If you intend to use this keyboard with more than one device, you MUST disable it from one device in order to use it on the other.
Here's why: the bluetooth signal is REALLY strong from the keyboard - 20 feet through sheet rock walls, easy. I was going nuts because I had paired it with my MacBook Pro and then, with my iPad. Suddenly, I was losing connection with my MacBook. I took my MacBook Pro and keyboard to the local Apple store, and the Genius bar couldn't replicate the problem.
But when I got back home, so was the problem.
Slowly, the solution came to me. I un-paired it from my iPad, and bingo, it worked well again with the MacBook Pro.
This is the very best keyboard I have ever used. It has just the right amount of tactile feedback, plus a short travel.

If I understand you correctly, it is a wireless bluetooth keyboard. It should work.

Yes. It is bluetooth. Connect it as if it were another bluetooth device.

Yes, the Apple Wireless Keyboard works great with the new iPad (3rd gen). The only downside is that there doesn't seem to be a way to activate the Home button from they keyboard, like the iPad Keyboard Dock has.
