Add tactile typing to your iPhone

Add tactile typing to your iPhone
The lack of a physical QWERTY keyboard on the iPhone means typing on glass. While other handsets have added haptic feedback, or have even tried to recreate the feeling of pressing on a button, the bottom line is that you are still putting finger to glass. As we've already mentioned in today's News Bits, enter the 4iThumbs overlays which go on the bottom of the screen over the virtual keyboard. The overlays come in both portrait and landscape models and have a little bump that corresponds to each virtual key on the handset. This way you get the tactile feel of typing while pounding on your iPhone. The portrait overlay is $14.95, the landscape version is $16.95 and you can save a ton by ordering both for $19.95 at 4iThumbs.com. Seems like a great holiday gift for the iPhone owner on your shopping list. No more envious looks at handsets with a physical QWERTY, alright?

This is a total waste of money. If you wanted a physical keyboard you wouldn't of purchased the iphone.

I would move on to another phone if Apple came up with a keyboard version.

Extremely gay. And its THAT kind of piss-poor "journalism" which at this point let's be frank is paid advertising that we've come to expect from phonearena.com I make it a point to steer my customers clear of this site. DROID FTW

He's not. He's not even using a Blackberry. He has a Palm Treo in his hands. That was a terrible video and they don't even really show off the product that they are trying to sell. Weaksauce

Dude the droid sucks...... My friend has one. Dont get me wrong it is a nice phone but compared to the ease of the iphone and everything else the iphone has. The droid is just another iphone killer that has failed to deliver. Get over it. Iphone rocks all. Iphoneluv out

WOW vzwman, are you just gonna copy and paste that retarded comment in every thread? Save us the injustice.

hello hova, these aren't threads for the 19th time. and again, no the droid is awesome. it's definitly not a failure as an iphone killer. the iphone home screen is soooo boring. i love having 3 screens of shortcuts and widgets and a background. :-)

Vzwman you can try the rest but you will never have the best... Iphone is the original and every phone that has come out and will continue to come out will do nothing but try to be an iphone. But as we all know there is only one and its not what you have.

i wouldn't own one if someone gave it to me for free and a free plan. the iphone is boring, old news, too simple, and just plain ugly. good bye crapple iphone. if anyone over 18 has an iphone i would be embarrased. :-)

Doesnt matter what the homescreen looks like if youre playing Doom or doing anything else that the iPhone offers. Besides....why would you keep looking and looking at your home screen....dont you have calls to answer....oh...maybe not.

boring and user friendly are two different things.....its far from boring.....but very user friendly. If you look at anything that Apple has made over the past several years...they dont have gimmicks or extra features. So a simple, streamlined phone is what you get from apple.

Oh and I did have the iPhone 2 years ago when the original came out. It's hard to leave the iPhone for all these shitty imitations when you get used to how great of a phone it is. I'm just sayin.

Old enough to know you spend far too much time on this website. I'm only on so much cause I'm at work, what's your excuse?? I can legally buy beer so I'm pretty sure I got a few years on you pal.

HOVA, Hkphooey just admitted the iPhone is a girlish/gay phone in my opinion if a male over the age of 17 owns an iPhone, there definitely gay "vzwman out"
