Keyboard Buddy, is a case for the iPhone 5 that adds a backlit physical keyboard to the device.

To add to the excitement of the much anticipated Apple iPhone 5, we bring you the impossibly slim Keyboard Buddy Case – Backlit Edition, an incredibly thin, form-fitting shell with the fully integrated, slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Designed to be the perfect compliment to the Apple iPhone 5, the Keyboard Buddy's easy slide in and out keyboard is smooth and natural. Your device will further appreciate the Keyboard Buddy's form fitting metallic shell and secure snap on design. No weird angles, bumps, or protrusions to get in the way. So natural in feel, we call them the perfect pair.

An onboard battery, chargeable by micro-USB cable, with up to 2 weeks worth of charge duration means your Apple iPhone 5 won't be slowed down by its buddy's nap time. Your Apple iPhone 5 will also be proud of its buddy's newest improvement; backlit keys make the Keyboard Buddy a great partner both day and night.

Remember when this was one of the most-wanted features when the 3GS was released?

Why are you going backwards in technology ? Who would use this hardware why buy a iPhone then ? Why not just buy an htc touch pro instead it comes with a slide out keyboard

Some journalist enjoy being able to see more of the screen. That way they can reference previous statements made earlier in their reports. It has a market, be it small but none the less it has a market. Plus if they got HTC PRO... Then they couldn't bitch about iOS maps that has only steered me wrong once and that's when I went to visit apple and I went off a bridge... LOL
