For those who made the switch to iPhone from BlackBerry or an iPhone user just looking to pump out emails faster, SoloMatrix has an apparent remedy. The Spike iPhone case functions as a simple case when you need your touchscreen, and when you need to type out messages a real keyboard swings out from the case’s back.
Essentially, the Spike case tries to give a familiar feel of the BlackBerry keyboard. But if you’re a newly iPhone convert would you really pay $35 to $60 for a case that attempts to replicate the keyboard of a device you left? We’ve seen many attempts at mimicking the BlackBerry keyboard, but so far none have come victorious. The case/keyboard design is pretty interesting for touch-only devices, do you think Spike should work with RIM to bring a similar case to the BlackBerry L-Series?
