Lean mean typing machine

We love our iPhone, but we also love real buttons. Stabbing at a screen is fine for a quick SMS, but we'd hate to write a whole blog post on this thing.

So we're quite intrigued by this new Keyboard Buddy accessory. It's a (surprisingly slim) case for iPhone 4 which contains a slide-out Bluetooth keyboard. Carry your phone around, use it as normal, but when you've got more serious typing to do, flip it over, slide down and off you go with a real keyboard. Just like on one of those nerdy Android phones, except you get iPhone cred - and iOS ease of use.

Of course, thin though it is, the Keyboard Buddy is still going to add a few mm (and a few grams) to your iPhone. But the convenience might be worth it, no?
