Based on consumer interest it would easy for some to say that the iPhone is the perfect smartphone, but for many others the lack of a tactile keyboard is still the device's greatest failing. One clever new concept remedies this by presenting a solution so quintessentially Apple-like it could fit into the brand's product line-up immediately.
The SmartKeyboard concept was designed by Jing Yang of the eico Motion Lab in China to illustrate a simple way to give the iPhone a tactile keyboard by using the same magnetic and colorful solution employed by the the very real iPad 2 Smart Covers. And, just like the Smart Cover, the SmartKeyboard would easily slide off whenever you're done typing. Most Blackberry-to-iPhone refugees will agree, this product should exist. You can see the SmartKeyboard concept in action in the video below.
