iPhone 4 gets slide-out keyboard

Clip-on Apple-to-HTC conversion

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Saddened that your iPhone 4 lacks a slide-out Qwerty keyboard? Soon you'll be able to add one.

BoxWave Keyboard Buddy

That's thanks to US accessories company BoxWave, which is now taking orders for Keyboard Buddy, an iPhone 4 case with a drop-down landscape-orientation Qwerty deck.

The keyboard connects to smartphone using Bluetooth, so it has its own battery on board, charged using a mini USB cable and good for 45 days' usage, BoxWave claims.

It doesn't obscure the iPhone 4's rear-facing camera, its controls or dock connector. The only downside: it adds a fair bit of girth to the Apple's slim frame, though we've seen fatter phones.

BoxWave will ship the Keyboard Buddy on 14 December, not only to Yanks but to the rest of us too. The accessory costs $70, and the cost of international P&P takes the price to $79 (£50). ®
