Hey guys,

Do any of you know if these exist, and if they do where I can purchase them from?

Unfortunatly Bluetooth won't cut it for my purposes.

You need to jailbreak to use a wired keyboard, IIRC.

Apparently the Camera connection kit will allow some USB keyboards to function

Camera connector USB worked with many accessories when back on ios4. Then apple removed many functionalities with the iOS 5 upgrade. Not sure what ios6 has to offer. Check the reviews on the apple site for the connector.

Hi Team - just an update on this - got the Camera connectivity adaptor (or whatever its called) and the keyboard worked straight away.  I did get an error saying the device was unsupported but it worked anyway - Device OS 5.0 I believe.

So thanks for all the help!
