WOW Keys-And with Compuexpert’s WOW-Keys, you can whip that flabby iPhone back into shape. WOW-Keys is a full-sized
QWERTY keyboard with a horizontal iPhone dock over where the number keys would usually be. And that’s the gimmick:
While the keyboard is hooked up to your PC or Mac you can use the iPhone as an input device. With separate software
(you’ll have to find some in the App Store) you can turn the iPhone into a numerical keypad, a multitouch trackpad,
or pretty much anything that there’s an app for. And because the dock charges the iPhone, the batteries won’t
go dead while you use it.
You can also use the keyboard to input text into the iPhone, making it double handy. In this mode, the function keys
become iPhone control keys and let you control music, volume, switch the display on and off (although you can’t adjust brightness)
and switch to the search or home screens.
Depending on the quality of the keyboard itself, the WOW-Keys could be a great way to both clear your desk of several other gadgets,
while throwing in some extras functions. The WOW-Keys will ship on May 24th for $100.
