    Toss it in rdry rice for a day or two and hope for the best. Other than that, you need to look at replacing the keyboard yourself or via a third-party and even then, if it got wet the issues might go beyond just the keyboard.

    I am afraid that the salt will probably finish your device off. If the water is pure (pH of 7) then you have a good chance it will work again. If the pH is 8 or above (as is seawater) then your chances are less. It is still worth the effort to dry it out. Do NOT be tempted to turn the device on for at least 2 days (depending on your drying method, of course).
