The challenge of the iPhone keyboard is not that it’s small — it’s that it doesn’t provide any tactile feedback. It was inevitable that third-party keyboards would emerge to address this gap.
Engadget has a report on a beta version of the Nuu Mini Key case for iPhone, which features a keyboard for use in landscape mode. But they aren’t impressed with the Bluetooth device, calling it “bulky” and noting that it lacks an extended-life battery pack.
Nuu Media makes the NUU Player, and a range of iPhone, iPad, and iPod accessories.
I’m not wild about the iPhone’s touchpad keyboard, so I’ll be on the lookout for elegant keyboard solutions. Stay tuned.
