Bluetooth wireless keyboards are still a rarity and that’s a bit weird given how huge the mobile market has grown…

So why not the Jorno?

Looks like it started at $79.
Retail is $119.

I am trying to see the compelling value proposition for the Elecom keyboard. If all that was available in the phone market was an iPhone-sized (3.5 inch) touch screen, there would seem to be a fairly compelling value proposition for users with large fingers and thumbs. But as larger screen sizes become the norm, the value proposition for the Elecom diminishes. If the Note II meets its goal of 20+ million sales, it would seem that the combination of a larger screen size plus stylus would pose a serious challenge for the Elecom.

Worth no more to me than $69.99 -- maybe up to $99.99 including an early adopter tax.

Too Bad phones don't do computer like things. So the keyboard is worthless. What's next? A folding mouse to go along with it.

Huh? What is e-mail? One of the claimed value propositions of the Surface tablets is the ability to create Office files. And, and, and. More and more functions of a traditional office-based PC are being migrated to a tablet form factor.

There are just other alternatives available to consumers.

Exactly, but I'm speaking specifically about phones. It's pointless to have a keyboard for it. It's even pointless to have a keyboard for my iPad 3 because it doesn't do computer like things. Now, Windows 8 surface deserves a key pad because that's like a mini laptop. I wouldn't be surprised if that even came with a mouse. Aha
