It’s been along time since I’ve heard anything from Boxwave. I got this PR earlier about their new product called The Keyboard Buddy and it’s for your iPhone 4. It essentially turns the iPhone into a slider. Sort of reminds me of my old Tilt, which I still have in a drawer.


– Continuing its pursuit of bringing innovative mobile solutions to market first, BoxWave® is introducing the Keyboard Buddy™ today for Apple’s popular iPhone 4.  The Keyboard Buddy™ is a wireless Bluetooth, slide out keyboard with an ultra-sleek, low profile design.

BoxWave’s Keyboard Buddy™ brings the tactile, push-button keyboard to the iPhone 4 that many have desired.  It enables users to quickly and easily type emails, text messages, and notes with a physical keyboard, found commonly on the BlackBerry® and other smartphones produced by HTC®, Motorola®, and Nokia®.  The Keyboard Buddy’s physical keyboard allows for more natural typing.  It provides greater accuracy of typing as users can feel the keys tactilely and offers larger keys than the virtual on-screen keyboard.  The Keyboard Buddy™ connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® to the iPhone 4 for seamless operation.

BoxWave’s Keyboard Buddy™ for the iPhone 4 is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and ergonomic. Its form maintains the minimalist design of the iPhone 4. With a snap of a finger, the keyboard quickly slides out, guided by a spring hinge.

Additionally, the Keyboard Buddy™ doubles as a protective case. The low profile, snap on shell casing attaches onto the iPhone 4 securely and easily. This protective shell features port openings for easy access to the iPhone 4’s volume control buttons, mute switch, and provides unobstructed use of the camera and built-in flash.

The Keyboard Buddy’s color and styling complement the Apple® iPhone 4, and upholds an elegant and professional appearance. The Keyboard Buddy™ is compatible with both AT&T’s and Verizon’s Apple® iPhone 4.

BoxWave’s Keyboard Buddy™ for the iPhone 4 is available immediately with an MSRP of $79.95. For more information, please visit:

The Keyboard Buddy™ is available online at and also at retail locations including Brookstone, Costco, Micro Center, and Franklin Covey.






  1. I love how this website has postings of press releases from companies they haven’t heard from in a long time. I don’t know why I come here anymore.

  2. Sorry, it had been a long day.

    I used to order things from boxwave, and they never lasted. Something like this looks good, but could be really cheap quality. I was thinking a product review would be more appropriate.

  3. I miss my Tilt and WinMo, Just saying. Never saw another one out in the wild.
    That looks like a cool product, seen them before though, and like he said, A product review might be more appropriate this late in the game considering it is iphone5 time.

  4. Yea, cool. I am actually looking at that Sony tablet P, for next purchase, maybe. Hope that dual screen will provide some cool functionality. I also like having something nobody else has. Currently Rockin’ the Dell Streak 5. Yes, I do enjoy saying so. And it is the first odd ball device I saw another one of. A co-worker had it, and promptly returned it. Peace
