The less expensive bluetooth keyboards that I could find were tiny and not full sized. The Logitech Bluetooth keyboard is also $70.
If you think these prices are bad, be glad you don't have to pay the Apple tax. The Logitech keyboard for the iPad is $100. Two very similar keyboards from the same manufacturer. Hmm, I can't think of any valid reason one should cost $30 more than the other.
I probably wouldn't have bought this keyboard at this time, but I had a $50 gift card. I don't know how often I'll be using it, but it sure is nice typing on a real keyboard vs the onscreen keyboard.
Onscreen keyboards like Swype and Thumb Keyboard are fine for small amounts of text, and I can even do a fair job of touch typing with the default onscreen keyboard (in landscape). For real text entry, the physical keyboard is not only more familiar and faster, but you also don't have half your screen being used up.
