Will the keyboard dock and iPad dock fit the iPad 2? It's dimensions are thinner, but will these docks be compatible with it?

Apple iPad Keyboard Dock
Product No Longer Available

I called Apple to ask, since I wanted one for my ipad2. They said it "can" fit but does not recommend it because of the differences in the two ipads. They said that dock and port are not completely aligned correctly so by using it, you could bend or break the pins in your ipad2. The dock will work though but at your own risk. Apple suggested that I get the wireless keyboard instead. I asked if they were making the keyboard dock for the ipad2. They said not at this time.

The other answer is no longer valid. I have an iPad 2 plugged into a Keyboard Dock - it's charging, and all of the keyboard functions work fine - typing, arrow keys, the iOS-specific keys, all fine.

I have mine plugged in right now. While it is able to charge, the iPad says that the device is not supported, and it won't recognize any of my keystrokes. Hopefully, Apple will remedy that.

Thanks guys, I also have an IPad 2 and have hesitated to buy a keyboard dock. Sounds like it's worth investing into, and it will work. I have not heard any word of Apple producing any new accessories for the second generation yet. You've been helpful, thank you.
