Spike TypeSmart Keyboard Makes An iPhone Wish It Was a BlackBerry

iPhone TypeSmart

ShvartzBerry pointed out a funny accessory that was shown off at CES this year. I am talking about the Spike TypeSmart Keyboard Case that makes an iPhone almost as easy to use as a QWERTY BlackBerry. It simply acts as a capacitive layer on top of the virtual keyboard and touches the glass for you. Whenever you push the key it is just pressing on the touchscreen. CNet reports that many of their keys did not register and words were missing letters. Hell he even compared it to his BlackBerry Curve and said the Curve wins hands down.

I thought it was funny to see an iPhone trying to camouflage itself as a Frankenstein BlackBerry.  Check out CNet’s coverage of the Spike TypeSmart for more info if you have a friend who is dying to get back in the QWERTY game. Either way the Spike TypeSmart is a creative Kickstarter concept that became a reality.

  1. LMAO!

  2. HOT!!

  3. if they can make one that fits the new all touch berries i wouldnt mind leaving my Torch

    • Ugh. I used a 9930 the other day. Hated it. felt too restricted on the keyboard. I adapted to the 9850 Torch within a few weeks and never looked back. So, just curious, why would you want to jump to the L Series then have to lug around an external keyboard.

  4. Just what I thought; the iPhone wants to be a BlackBerry when it grows up!

  5. Looks clunky and bulky. I hope RIMM comes with a better form fitting external keboard and a blackberry slider as well.

  6. If they only had a smartphone that had a full featured keyboard with raised keys that you can actually press, then you wouldn’t need this weird contraption to use on your iPhone. Oh wait, they do.
