    That is not possible at this time.

    Your can get a bluetooth keyboard or a keyboard dock from Apple.

    I agree.  It is one of the things that Apple needs to fix.

    IOS does not support a mouse, so even if you were to plug in a mouse, say via an iPad Camera Connection Kit, it would not show up as a pointer.

    It has been done on a jailbroken ipad, using an app called Btstack Mouse from Cydia
