$50 iPhone case packs a usable QWERTY keyboard

Is it the iPhone's lack of a physical keyboard and touchscreen only option that's preventing more users from purchasing the popular smartphone? Well, it looks like the iPhone's problem of lacking a keyboard has been fixed; somewhat.

The TK-421 iPhone 4 case will not only protect your handset from daily wear and tear, while still preventing any death grip issues, but it even packs on a usable keyboard to give owners that tactile response they're accustomed to feeling with a regular keyboard. As you can tell from the photos, the case from ThinkGeek actually connects the keyboard to the handset via Bluetooth, but it's attached by a hinge which allows it to fold over to completely protect the handset.

Definitely it's a much wanted accessory that many iPhone owners have been yearning for some time – and it'll be available starting in late November for the reasonable price of $50. In addition, they will also offer one for the iPhone 3GS, but unfortunately there is no love for older iPhone 3G owners.
