One of the biggest disadvantages of the iPhone versus the Blackberry or other smartphones is the lack of a physical keyboard. Industrial designer Altamash Jiwani has drawn up a conceptual design for a QWERTY keyboard case that snaps right on to the iPhone. Yes before you go freaking out, it’s a design concept (sorry!) but an intriguing one. The keyboard itself is designed to slide up and down to either cover the button on the bottom or not.
It’s an interesting (and some would probably say necessary) design idea but somehow I don’t think Apple will go for it.
