The only supported wireless keyboard on the iPAD is Apple Wireless Keyboard - English (USA).

Apple Wireless Keyboard - English (USA)

The completely cable-free Apple Wireless Keyboard uses Bluetooth technology to connect to your Mac or iPad. So you’re free to move the keyboard pretty well anywhere within range, and wirelessly type away. And its slim, compact design takes up much less space on your desk.

Here is a list of eight supported third party keyboards

No, The iPad is strictly a touchpad device like the iPhone. Although a wireless keyboard will work with the iPad a mouse will not.

So in other words, even though my iPad recognizes my Bluetooth Dell keyboard, I still will not be able to use it?
