iPhone Keyboard Flip Case

Plenty of people don't like the iPhone on-screen keyboard. The TK-421 offers a tactile alternative, one that rotates out a keyboard from behind the case as needed and then hides quickly.

ThinkGeek doesn't provide any dimensions for the case, but it'll obviously add some thickness to your phone, along with a side protrusion that houses the hinge.

The keyboard itself is powered by its own rechargeable battery, which charges via USB.

We taunt our monkeys Brett & Julie for sticking with Blackberry, but we have to agree, the physical keyboard is pretty handy to have. Even though our iPhone enthusiasts are used to typing on glass with no tactile feedback, nothing beats having real old skool style buttons to mash your thumbs on. Now you can have the best of both worlds with the TK-421 iPhone case with flip-out keyboard. This case has a handy built in keyboard that rotates out when needed. Use it for e-mails, texting, apps. It's almost like your iPhone gained an extra super power!

There are two models of the TK-421 case, one for the iPhone 3GS and the other for iPhone 4. Yes. We know that the iPhone 3G is the same form factor as the 3GS but unfortunately Apple decided that the 3G was just too slow to add Bluetooth™ keyboard support into the OS... go figure.
