    Lol don't you love when people believe everything they see on the internet?

    A girl comes up to me in school and says "omg did you see the new iPhone coming out? it's gonna have a physical keyboard!"

    I was just like "oohhh really.... that's cool" knowing damn well there is no such thing coming out. But I didn't wanna blow up her spot, I just let her have her moment.

    And... the reasoning behind using that as a thread title?

    I forgot to put "not really" at the end of it, sorry.

    Thats what YOU think. Apple IS coming out with a keyboard but I cannot say more. I will say, apple is all about taking over and wanting to walk about with their heads held high. And for the 1st time they will have 2 iphones to pick from!

    I wouldn't mind seeing what a physical keyboard would look like on the iPhone.

    I can't even tell you how many times people tell me stuff about new apple products they think they know about. I just have to bit my lip and be happy for them and their knowledge. My dad told me their was probably going to be a new iPhone this summer...thank you captain obvious.

    8 replies...most are negative. MacRumors=ridiculous.

    You realise you've posted a thread on a rumors site saying a particular rumor with no evidence is false, when you yourself have no evidence to support your claim? :rolleyes:

    Why would they release a full virtual keyboard software update if they were releasing a full qwerty keyboard

    Because you're only going to be able to use a slide out keyboard in landscape (I assume). So there still needs to be a virtual keyboard for when you're not in landscape. And what about the 1st and 2nd Gen iPhones? They still need the virtual keyboard whatever happens.

    I'm not saying there will or will not be a physical keyboard, I'm just saying why there would be a virtual keyboard if a slide out one is on the way.

    Seeing as the dock connector and Bluetooth will be open - i'd expect a rollout plastic mat style keyboard to easily work with the iPhone in the next few months, if there's a market, i'd easily see this selling.

    Why limit yourself to a cramped keyboard? It's an argument towards a slate/mini notepad really also.

    Ahh.. newyorksole, you have much to learn young padawan.

    What you really should have done in this situation, and let this be a lesson to all you other PUA hopefuls, is have pulled out a hella neg. You know what I'm talkin about. Put that HB in her place.

    Maybe if you'd used your brains you'd have gotten laid for once. [​IMG]

    Most AFC's I meet are bitter, much unlike yourself.

    Yes, let's take the greatest touchscreen device ever and give it a slide out keyboard...why not stick a big antenna out of the top too or maybe we could just go back to sending telegrams. It would make me sick if Apple did this.
