Question keyboard

Okay so my sister recently purchased a galaxy tab 2 7 inch. She would like to use a keyboard on it so that she can type stuff for school. Kinda like turning it into a laptop. i would like to find her something that either connects a normal usb keyboard oris a dock or something. Also try to keep it cheap.

Thanks!

I have not personally tried this but I bet a bluetooth keyboard would work.

Also I seen this on Samsungs website

Logitech has a bluetooth keyboard that is made just for tablets.

This is the one we're using:

Support + Downloads: Tablet Keyboard - Logitech

I bought the USB from eBay. It works like a charm with a keyboard and mouse (if you have a USB hub)

Mine came in the wrong color so I sent it back. Also during the time I did have it, it wouldn't connect to the one device I needed it for.

That's the same keyboard I use, and it runs great. The case also converts into a very sturdy, reliable stand for the tablet. I would just recommend investing in two pairs of 4 AAA Energizer rechargeable batteries as well, so you'll have a backup set on hand in case the batteries die unexpectedly.

I'd also recommend this companion piece from Logitech: Amazon.com: Logitech Tablet Mouse for Android 3.1+ (910-002626): Electronics

You can find it at Target for $29.99. For this, keep some rechargeable AA batteries on hand.
