BoxWave’s Buddy Brings a Physical Keyboard to Your iPhone

The guys at BoxWave know you’re dying to get a physical keyboard on your iPhone so they came up with a nifty little accessory called the Keyboard Buddy Case.

The Keyboard Buddy Case is a case for your iPhone 4 that also includes an integrated slide-out Bluetooth keyboard. Unlike the Nuu, you just have to slide the keyboard to make it appear, just like you would on one of those Android phones.

Looking at the pictures, I have to admit that this thing doesn’t look as bad as it sounds…

The form-fitting shell was designed to snap on securely to perfectly fit your iPhone, while still leaving an opening for the camera. The keyboard has an on/off button to help you manage the battery power more efficiently. Speaking of which, the Buddy can be charged via USB, and it will go for 45 days on standby. Not bad.

Currently pre-selling at $70, it will ship sometimes in December.

Is that something you’d use?
