Ah, the dilmma. You like the BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard but want iOS apps aplenty. Well, Spike is about to put another nail in the RIM coffin – it may need something better than a larger PlayBook.
The SoloMatrix Spike case offers two options: the Spike1, where the keyboard is physically attached but removable from the case, and the Spike2 which features a hinged full QWERTY keyboard that can be moved 180 degrees so you can get access to the full touchscreen.
Designed to match the current iPhone colour-ways, both Spikes will initially be offered in either Pitch Black or Ice White.
There will also be a special limited edition, all aluminum model with the option for personalised engraving. These will come anodized in various colours – including “Kickstarter Green”.
The Kickstarter Green option may have already given the game away but the Spike keyboard case is currently aiming to raise US$75,000 on the crowd funding Kickstarter site – it’s looking good too with US$64,000 already bagged and 32 days still to go.
