Make your iPhone 4 Get Physical with the Boxwave “Keyboard Buddy” Bluetooth Keyboard.

Share

There’s no denying the iPhone 4 is an extremely popular and successful device. The biggest reason being the touchscreen that literally revolutionized the smartphone world back in 2007. But as great as the touchscreen is, some people still prefer good ‘ol physical buttons. Apple won’t be adding in physical keys and keyboards anytime soon. So that leaves 3rd parties to fill in the gap. So far, we’ve only seen a few bluetooth iPhone keyboards. They haven’t been particularly well designed or good at what they do. Though the Boxwave Keyboard Buddy Bluetooth keyboard looks like it could be different in that respect…

Like various other iPhone keyboards, this one takes the shape of an actual mini-case with an attached keyboard. The KB keyboard has cut-outs for everything you would expect — camera, flash, volume buttons, on/off button, etc. As far as wireless longevity goes, the KB Buddy is designed to shut off when idle to help conserve both its own battery life as well as your iPhone’s. Speaking of battery life, manufacturer estimates peg it at 45 days on a full charge. That’s certainly impressive. Though a real world test is real deciding factor.

You’ll be able to pick up the Boxwave Keyboard Buddy Bluetooth Keyboard when it goes on sale December 14th for $79.95. If you pre-order before December 14th, you can score a nice little $10 discount, netting your a seemingly awesome iPhone keyboard for $69.95 instead. We’re pinning for a review unit so we can let you guys and gals how great it really is. Another shot after the break. Stay tuned.
