We use our keyboards to email our contacts, unearth facts and create articles. We type therefore we are. Parting a journalist from their physical keyboard is therefore ill-advised, to say the least - and yet Apple’s iPad tablet suggests it’s possible for people to get by with a touchscreen alone. So can I really trade in my laptop and work just as productively on an iPad? Or will a virtual keyboard turn my working day into a world of pain?
