The instructions to get this keyboard to work were extremely simple: “To use the keyboard dock, the mobile tablet needs to have the input method set to Samsung keypad.” I had all of the correct settings but when I put the Tab 10.1 in it connected as though it were the desktop dock. The display on-screen was only the dimmed full-screen clock. However, after a software update it worked fine.
Once the dock was working correctly the Galaxy Tab 10.1 keyboard dock was exceptional. It is fitted with comfortable chick-let keys, a dozen Honeycomb-specific navigation keys, and a sturdy body.
Samsung has once again produced a great quality product. I was able to type quick and easily on this to compose many e-mail messages and documents. I recommend this to anyone looking for a keyboard for their Galaxy Tab.
On the other hand, the Multimedia Dock seems to have far less of a purpose. The Keyboard Dock did everything that the Multimedia Dock is intended for, and has the added bonus of being a keyboard. Personally, I would spend the extra money to buy the Keyboard Dock in favor of the Multimedia Dock.
