    *shrugs* i dunno, i think it could be cool. especially if/when you have extended writing to do. Now i wouldn't pay 15 bucks (and you don't get both, thats just for portrait, the set of 2 is $20), but i might consider buying this if it was a cheaper, i mean i dont' care how you dress it up, it is just a piece of plastic. but i'd pay $5 and throw it in my bag for use one day when i need to type for an extended period (maybe a long beejive session, or writing a paper or something). def not attaching it to the back of my phone though lol

    OKAY! Seriously people, if you find typing to be that big of a ***** on the iPhone then a touch screen is not for you! Simple as that.

    Too bad he held up a Treo and said "and I'm a Blackberry." Not sure if that was intentional or not. Either way, pretty lame commercial.

    bahahaha, I didn't even notice! Good Eye, and my guess is, its not on purpose. The production value is just way too low to imagine them thinking about the continuity of the "blackberry".

    I think that they should just make a removable keyboard that can be plugged into the dock connector. I have the LG Versa and I can either use the virtual keyboard (much like the iPhone's but with haptic feedback) or I can put on a detachable full QWERTY keyboard. A very good idea i think....

    I like how isham.padron is complaining about nickhesson's misspelling in the article when he himself has misspelled the word "for" in his post here, "...but it doesn't work form me."

    Take your own advice man.

    the iPhone is supposed to be simple and fast, now it will take 10 minutes to prep your iPhone for a message. RetaRTed, watch them make a million dollars off this. I'm thinking about duct tapping my computer keyboard to my 3gs, imagine how fast I could type then. How do I start a patent.

    QUOTE:"....Blackberry users squeel about how their BB is better because it has a keyboard or how the BlackBerry Storm's feedback is way better than the iPhone...."

    the reason being, is that the blackberrys screen actually indents in as you press it. its not haptic feedback, its physical feedback. how long do you suppose a screen like that would hold up to a serious typer?
