Here’s a new QWERTY Keyboard Case for the iPhone, just strap it on and there you go, well not exactly. You get a fully functional full QWERTY keyboard that connects to the iPhone via Bluetooth and charges itself using a USB cable.
The additional keyboard is by a company called Boxwave and they’ve named this wonderful attachment as the Keyboard Buddy Case, which acts as a slide-out keyboard and also as a protection case for the iPhone.
Once the Keyboard Buddy is attached to the iPhone, it doubles the size and thus adds a few more ounces to the weight too. Not too bulky though, unlike other iPhone keyboard cases out there this is quite slimmer and on a full charge lasts upto 45 days. This would be very helpful for people who want to get an iPhone but aren’t comfortable with the on-screen QWERTY.

The Keyboard Buddy Case is available at Boxwave.com for a totally worth price of $ 69.95 including free shipping within the U.S, ships worldwide too.

Here comes another leaked Nokia device in form of FULL QWERTY keyboard. Few months back, Nokia X2 was launched at just Rs. 5700 which proved to be absolute amazing in terms of the specifications. This time its X2-01 which looks like an entry-level QWERTY phone. Here are few specs:
- Camera: 3 megapixel
- Resolution: QVGA (320 x 240 pixels)
- Memory: 42 MB with expandable memory
- Connectivity: EDGE, Wi-fi and Bluetooth
- Measurements: 119.4×59.8×14.3 mm
- Weight: 114 g
- Colors: Gray, White, Red, and Purple
Although these specifications are not final, but at this moment we can say that this phone has no extra features and design also looks dull. The phone is expected to be priced at around Rs. 4500 and will be launched in first quarter of next year.
I would rather suggest you to go for Nokia C3-00 which is also a FULL QWERTY keypad and optimized social networking featured phone. This phone looks to be more promising than X2-01.
It runs on Series 40 which is a rather dated platform. With the following specifications Nokia C3 is priced at Rs. 5745
- Camera: 2 MP (Upto 4x Zoom)
- Screen Size: 2.4″
- Resolution: 320 x 240 pixels
- Memory: 55 MB internal memory expandable up to 8 GB additional memory with microSD card
- Battery: Up to 7 hours of talk time.

Review of Nokia 6670 Slide:
My first impression of Nokia 6670 is it;s design and look. It has a QWERTY keyboard and which is very handy to use. One specific thing which I liked about this phone is dedicated on touch key for messaging, web and menu. If you are addicted to SMS, this phone is for you sure.
What I don’t like about Nokia 6670 Slide is camera quality. Images take time to stabilize and you need to hold your camera in the same position for at least 3 sec after clicking to get a nice picture. This is something which we see common issue in Nokia phones. Though 3.2 camera is quite handy and this phone is priced at 199 Euro.
If you looking for a budget Nokia phone around 10-15K , this could be a nice pick. I will suggest once it’s available in Indian market, go to Nokia store and play with it, it will be easy for you to make the decision.
