The sliding keyboard would be a good way to attract Blackberry users.

On second hand, Tim Cook is running the company.

If it has a sliding keyboard I will buy it. I would never make a habit of buying the next year's phone, just the 2nd next year, but I will replace my iPhone4 for the newer one IF it has a sliding keyboard. I can't type without my eyes with a smooth screen.

I'm not in favor of a sliding keyboard. This is a draw back.

On the second hand, Tim Cook is running the company.
On the third hand, Apple's chief engineer is leaving for england, they could never coordinate this.
On the fourth hand, there really is no third hand.

Orite guys, I'm not concerned at all about this. Rumours are rumours and this might well be a prototype of some kind. The keyboard won't happen, it isn't apple. And as earlyer menitoned steve even bashed and crushed the keyboards at the original iPhone's keynote.
If, however, this happens, then I'm gonna spend my saved 700€ on something else than upgrading my 3GS.

I'm gonna go with this not happening. If it does. I will buy it an then throw it on eBay and keep my i4. I'm extremely happy with this phone. I love multi touch gestures and touch screen keyboard. I can't see changing this. But I dunno

What says that is an iPhone part? Could just as easily be an iPad part. Man the wild speculation around here is horrible.

a lot of i phones on kijiji here because the users cant stand the touch screens and are are going back to blackberry. i wouldn't mind a keyboard but could live without it also..
apple probably wants a larger share of the business market..

This looks like it is for the Verizon iPhone, the dock connector and microphone are in the exact same spots as on the iPhone 4's dock connector.Sent from my iPhone

This actually proves nothing. The current iPhone 4 has the exact same part in it with a different part number. The design has not changed in any way, shape, or form.

I think a slide out keyboard is a great idea. Hopefully it will also have game controls and a trackpad. It would be the best phone ever if it gets jailbroken.

What a disaster. So many nice iPhone designs on google.com and they are going towards physical keyboard.
Maybe this is Apple's phone that said it will compete with android the smaller version of iPhone.

I bet if it has a slide out, it will still be thin and sleek. Apple will figure a way to make it like that so it will be different.

Apple are more likely to release an iPhone running Android OS before they put a physical keyboard anywhere near an iPhone.
