A wise man once said ‘a touchscreen without a space bar is like a bear without a barrel’ and we’ve got to admit it does seem to make some kind of sense. If you’re going to be doing real work on your handset, you’ll definitely need something which offers a bit more flexibility than just swipe and smile.
This iPhone 5 Keyboard Case offers all the protective goodness you’d expect from something that coddles your precious smartphone, but throws in a generous amount of QWERTY hunt and peck for those moments when a quick SMS won’t cut the mustard.
We’re going to suggest that you probably wouldn’t want to write the next War & Peace on the thing, but it’s got to be useful for those resignation letters, and apology notes to your parole officer sort of thing. It connects via Bluetooth, lasts 30 days in standby mode, and is backlit so you can use it on planes and late at night in bed with the curtains drawn and the NSA banished to the living room.
On special offer at $39.99 they tell us, and you can even personalize the thing for an extra $6.95. Bargain!
