I use my iPad, iPhone and Nexus phone with a physical keyboard -- a lot, and always have.
Just about any bluetooth keyboard will work with just about any phone or tablet. A lot of people don't know this.
For years, I used the standard Apple Magic Keyboard. I liked the feel of the keyboard, and it was pretty durable.
The problems with it as a mobile keyboard are that 1) it doesn't hold the device like a cradle; 2) the keys are at risk from jostling stuff in side my backpack, and could get damaged; and 3) it uses AA batteries.
A while ago, I did a comprehensive review of truly mobile Bluetooth keyboards, and the Microsoft Mobile Keyboard came out on top of my review.
The Microsoft Mobile Keyboard is truly awesome. It's a clamshell design, so the cradle part that holds the device at an angle also folds over to protect and cover the keys. It's instant to use; opening the lid turns on the keyboard. The battery last for weeks or months (no idea, since it has never died on me). And you can set up three devices, which you can choose with a switch -- I often use my tablet and phone side-by-side, and switch between them. It's durable, too.
Best of all, the keys feel GREAT to type on.
It makes a perfect gift, too.
