Default Attachable keyboard

Hey guys I was wondering if they make an attachable keyboard for the galaxy or any other android tablet. What I'm looking for is something like the iPad keyboards they have. Hence I would need a mini USB one, any ideas?

Why not go one step further and pick up a bluetooth wireless keyboard?
There are many on the market now.

A few years ago I used to use an IR wireless keyboard with my Toshiba e830 pocket PC and it worked great.

Nook? (Nokia?) or do you lose bluetooth on the SGS when you root?

Can you guys help me real fast? I have a Nook cord which is a USB end that plugs into the computer, then the micro usb that plugs into the nook. If I bought this Amazon.com: USB Gender Changer, A Female To Female: Electronics would it turn the USB end into something that can receive a keyboard cord?

I doubt it, the Nook would have to have USB host capabilities, and AFAIK it doesn't.
