Hardware QWERTY fans rejoice! iPhone 4 gets Boxwave Keyboard Buddy add-on

Share


The iPhone is unlikely to ever get a hardware QWERTY keyboard, so if you’re hankering for some typing action get a load of this new accessory from Boxwave.

Their Keyboard Buddy is a Bluetooth keyboard that doubles up as a protective case for your iPhone 4. Pair it with your iPhone and the keyboard slides out for some button pressing action.

With a battery good for 45 days before a USB charge, it’s also got cut-outs for the camera, volume and speaker, so as not to get in the way of their functionality.

“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”, says the Boxwave release.

“The low-profile keyboard slides out smoothly, allowing you to easily transition between the Apple iPhone 4’s touch screen and a physical keyboard”.

You can pre-order the Keyboard Buddy now for $69.95, with units shipped from 14th December.
