With Hip Street’s Keyboard Case for iPhone 4 and 4S, BlackBerry devotees have nothing on Apple fans.
There are so many good iPhone cases on the market, but when it comes to our ongoing Mobile Accessory of the Week feature, there can be only one! This week, it’s a case that’ll finally get BlackBerry users to leave iPhone users alone.
With Hip Street’s KeyBoard Case for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, Apple devotees can finally experience the ease of texting and typing that BlackBerry adherents are always harping on about.
Most of the the time, KeyBoard Case looks like your mild-mannered, everyday smartphone case, with a black satin-finish backing and attractive metallic accent around the edge. But when times call for a lengthy text or full email rather than a line or two, the BlueTooth-enabled, full Qwerty keyboard slides out for serious typing jobs.
But the integration of a full and super-handy keyboard in no way interferes with the way you’d normally use your iPhone. With a cutout design, the touchscreen is completely unencumbered and the case itself doesn’t add very much bulk to your iPhone either.
Because it’s BluTooth-enabled, you do have to charge the Hip Street Keyboard Case via USB cable, but a good 2 to 3 hours of charging should last you a few days. And you can always turn off the keyboard with a switch whenever it’s not in use to conserve battery power.
Over all, it’s a well made, sleek-looking case and an invaluable tool for anyone who tends to use their iPhone heavily for texts and emails. And that makes it our top pick for mobile accessory of the week.
