Some iPhone users could never dream of sticking a physical keyboard on their phone, although according to Spike there is a market for a BlackBerry-style keyboard for iPhone. Steve Jobs had never been a fan of physical keyboards, but this hasn’t stopped third parties from working on accessories for those iPhone users that want this option. The image seen above shows Spike’s physical keyboard and protective case, although there are 3 different models as shown in the other images.
You can hear more about this Kick Starter project via the video below, which explains Spike’s aim for the future of this accessory. It’s worth noting that they need $75,000 for this project by August 11. At the time of writing almost $55,000 has been raised from 588 backers, and there is just 30 days to go. Find out more on kickstarter.com, and by watching the video below.
