    I was thinking about the lack of Bluetooth keyboards and came across a decent reason for it's absence.
    Right now you hold the iPhone to use it and touch the screen to navigate.
    With a Bluetooth keyboard you have to put down the iPhone - presumably into some kind of holder/dock to make looking at the screen comfortable. So this require is already ineligent and means you don't need Bluetooth at all; a hard dock on the keyboard keeps the phone screen at a reasonable angle.

    Now we have navigation. Without a mouse how are you to navigate or even launch apps? If you've just docked your keyboard or hung it in your homemade paper-thingy, are you really going to pick it up repeatedly? You would need some form of cursor to support a mouse or trackball.
    Now we have navigation.

    Having a keyboard with a dock would be great anyway. Since the iPhone would be near your hand, you could still "point and click" using your fingers...

    How I wish such a keyboard would exists. It would then be possible to use my iPhone as a mini-laptop to write reports on the road.
