SoloMatrix Spike iPhone case offers full keyboard

If you were finding it hard to jump from BlackBerry onto the keyboard-free iPhone, your move just got easier

As if BlackBerry wasn’t in enough trouble at the moment now Spike, with its new keyboard toting case, has given RIM users another reason to jump ship to iPhone.

The SoloMatrix Spike case offers two options: the Spike1, where the keyboard is physically attached but removable from the case, and the Spike2 with a hinged full qwerty keyboard that can be moved 180 degrees to access the full touchscreen. They will initially be available in black and white with engravable anodised alluminium and Kickstarter green models to follow.

The Spike keyboard case is currently aiming to raise US$75,000 on Kickstarter and it’s looking good with US$64,000 already bagged and 32 days still to go. Check out the video pitch below for more.
