ION iType is "World's First Desktop Keyboard" for the iPhone


ION released the first desktop keyboard designed exclusively for use with the iPhone. While ION is an unlikely company to be releasing this product due to their history in consumer audio products, iPhone users have been craving a product like this for some time. Though, ION was skimpy on the details.

The battery-powered iTYPE features a standard QWERTY keyboard with full-sized keys. That is where the technical information ends. It is unknown whether the keyboard connects wirelessly to the iPhone (it appears to be a docking mechanism), or what technology lies beneath the keys.

However, if you can forgive the lack of information, the product could be great if executed well. The iPhone can handle most of a commuters technology needs, but touch-typing can be a pain for some.

What do you think, worthwhile or worthless?
