  • Physical Keyboard Case for iPhone

    If you miss the days when all smartphones had physical keyboards, then you’ll love the new TK-421 iPhone Case with Flip-Out Keyboard. ThinkGeek will be releasing this new keyboard case for iPhone 3GS and 4 users in November for $49.99. The case connects to the iPhone via Bluetooth, so it doesn’t block the dock connector. Unfortunately, this case is not compatible with the iPhone 3G, as Apple chose not to include Bluetooth support for this model due to speed concerns. If you’re a fan of the T-Mobile Sidekick flip around keyboard, then you’ll love the way this new keyboard case flips around.

    If you’re like me, you took some time getting used to the iPhone’s touch-screen keyboard. Like most, I soon adapted to the feeling of typing on glass. But some users still long for the tactile feeling of an actual keyboard, while not wanting to give up their iPhones. As it is now, iPhone users must watch the screen as they type, or risk making mistakes while using the onscreen keyboard. The design may be convenient, but if you find yourself writing anything longer than a text message, a real keyboard becomes something of a necessity. Adding a physical keyboard to an iPhone, users will now be able to type by touch, not necessarily needing to watch the screen the whole time.

    If you’re a diehard Star Wars fan, the model name TK-421 may sound familiar to you. TK-421 is the name of the Stormtrooper Luke knocks out in the original Star Wars movie. I hope George doesn’t find out about this or he may get his lawyers involved. That would be a shame because this is just the sort of product some people have been waiting for.

      I used to own a tmobile side kick and it's one of the worst phone I've ever owned in my life, never going back to tmobile again.

      I totally agree, and it already is fat enough.

      I got this keyboard on Wednesday and I really like it. My only complaint is that it's a major pain to turn on.
