    Does anyone know how likely it is that the keyboards that will be compatible with the Ipad will also be useable with the Iphone or if this will open the door to the development of keyboards for use with the Iphone? If they're both running on the Iphone operating system, it at least appears to be a possibility.

    For myself, I've become used to using the onscreen keyboard in the Iphone for short entries and relatively short emails. However, being able to create somewhat longer emails and documents right on my Iphone with a larger, physical keyboard would be a wonderful enhancement and I can't see using the touch keyboard for that.

    Hear, hear! I'm REALLY hoping that the iPad will lead to parallel products for the iPod Touch and iPhone, in particular, the external keyboard. I've had a Palm Portable Keyboard for my Tungsten T|2 for years, and am really missing being able to touchtype on the iPhone. I've gotten faster, but it's still not anywhere close to the 70+ wpm I can hit with a real keyboard. PLEASE, Apple, make it work with the iPod Touch and iPhone. That will be a huge step in making the device a truly business-capable tool, instead of a really cool toy...

    We all know that a real keyboard is possible for the iPhone. The powers to be at Apple are Progressive Socialists who believe that we, the users, are stupid and that only they know what we actually need.

    I love the iphone, don't get me wrong. But sometimes i hate how apple mononpolizes the iphone. Let other hardware work for it and it might go further.
