Keyboard Buddy iPhone 4 Case Offers Slide-out Keyboard
November 21, 2010
Here’s an iPhone accessory that made me do a double-take when I first saw it. It’s the Keyboard Buddy Case for the iPhone 4, from Boxwave. Here’s a little background on it, via its page at the Boxwave site:
Clean and modern, the Keyboard Buddy Case appears to simply be a protective case when the keyboard is not in use. Combining ergonomic technology with sleek aesthetics, the Keyboard Buddy Case is a protective backing for your Apple iPhone 4 that also includes an integrated slide-out Bluetooth keyboard. The low-profile keyboard slides out smoothly, allowing you to easily transition between the Apple iPhone 4’s touch screen and a physical keyboard.
At BoxWave, we believe in adding to the functionality of your device, not just simply maintaining it. With the Keyboard Buddy Case, rest easy knowing that the best of both worlds is at your fingertips.
I imagine this one will be a very tough sell to most iPhone users. I know I’ve become used to and more than happy with the virtual keyboard over the years of iPhone use. The fact that it uses Bluetooth is also a big minus for me, given the battery life implications.
If this is the missing piece you’ve been waiting for on your iPhone 4, you can pick one up at Boxwave for $69.95:
What do you all think? Do you need / want a slide-out keyboard for your iPhone?
