I had the boxwave then i got this one. Let me tell you why its 10 times better: 1. Backlite so i can type in the dark 2. Better keyboard layout ( as in the space bar isn't all the way to the right ) 3. Heavy duty sliding 4. WAY easier to remove the phone so i can prove to people its really a iphone. 5. blue tooth recognision is way fast.. as in NO delay. I just open it and type. I've had it for a while and the battery is proving to last which I really hope it stays that way. Super easy set up. and being able to lock the capital's button is awesome. I LIKE TO SAY IT WITH FEELINGS sometime. I hate typing on the iphone screen this thing has really nice shapes on the buttons too which make me type quick and acurate. I DIG THIS THING. I recommend.

All I have to say is that I tried the boxwave keyboard and hated it.
This one, I LOVE!

+ Key layout is as it should be. Space bar is centered, the letter G is above V and not B like the other iPhone keyboards I've seen.
+ The iPhone fits flush inside of it.
+ It's easy to remove the phone from the case if you ever need to, but not too easy so that the phone just falls out of the case on it's own.
+ Syncing is easy. You just press and hold the button right on the front, and only have to sync it once.
+ The keyboard backlight is optional. Turn it on and off with the switch on the front.
+ Doesn't seem to have any significant drain on the phones battery.
+ Charged the keyboard when I got it a week ago and still not in need of recharging.
+ Rubber texturized so it doesn't slip and slide all over the place.
+ Solid build. No fragile feel to the keys or the case.
+ Keyboard activates within a second of sliding open.
- Backlight takes about 3 seconds to activate upon sliding open.
+/- It does add significant weight and thickness, but I'm used to a heavier phone so I like it.
- Auto-complete and auto capitalization can't be activated while the keyboard is active.
Any questions feel free to ask.

My husband convinced me to switch from my BB to an IP4. The biggest challenge has been not having buttons especially since most of my work and personal communication is done through my phone. I got a Brookstone catalog which had a keyboard for the IP4. I didn't even know that was possible! So I headed to amazon to see what else might be out there then I checked out the tech websites to get the full story about this keyboard. It's not cheap so I wanted to be sure it had what i needed which was slightly raised, backlit keys and good reviews. I just started using it last night and this is my analysis:
very easy to setup
thickness does not bother me
I like some of the Nuu keyboard user features better that the IP4's keyboard.
It works seamlessly with the IP so i can use the touch screen as well, at any point.
Much easier for me to type with my thumbs/two hands.
I like the feel of the backside of the keyboard panel.
Sentences and "I" don't seem to autocap.
I don't !ove the spacebar location, it needs to be either bigger or more to the right for my liking.
Overall: I like it, I'm glad I got it and I would recommend it.

Longtime BB user that went from a BB 9700 Torch to an iPhone 4, and like other BB users new to iPhone I'm not willing to invest 6-12 months figuring out how to type reasonably efficiently on smooth glass. After only 3 or 4 days of trying to type out legible emails, now I understand why there are so many 'dumb autocorrect' jokes floating around. It's simply too much to ask for iOS to know what we want to convey as far as typographical errors on the smooth screen.

Yes this case makes the iPhone thick (it is almost a full 20mm with the iPhone in it), and I will have to look around for a suitable leather pouch / case for it (it would have been better if it had a clip for me to use on my belt, but that's just my preference), but the slider mechanism is smooth enough (not as silky 'solid' as the Torch but nice nonetheless). Being able to crank out emails on a real keyboard is a joy - much more productive when I can give a comprehensive answer to a simple email request without resorting to one more thing I've got to take care of when I'm back at the office. (I'm a field employee so having the ability to type on the go is very important.) There is some adjustment needed to the keyboard layout, I miss the right shift-key as well as the spacebar could be a tad longer as I feel it doesn't extend far enough to the right, but it is nice to have a full complement of symbols accessed through cmd-key combinations, and the symbols are clearly marked, unlike the BB where a 'sym' key took you to another full screen to tap. For someone who uses symbols like %, & and = with some regularity (who doesn't?) this is very helpful to have.

Like most people looking for a keyboard case I switched from a BlackBerry (Tour) to an iPhone and had trouble adjusting to the touchscreen keyboard. After trying out the Nuu K1 which has the best reviews on Amazon, it seems that the iPhone's touchscreen is as good as it gets right now.

Honestly, I'm having a hard time believing some of these 5 star reviews that mention the thickness of the case being the biggest issue. The biggest issue is that the keyboard is unresponsive and lacks the texture of a blackberry keyboard. The keys themselves are very flat and they all feel the same. Maybe it was just the one they sent me but my "t" button required twice as much pressure as most of the other keys while my "h" key was twice as sensitive. This led to many spelling errors which weren't corrected by auto correct since this device isn't compatible with auto correct. Also, it's worth noting that prior to trying this keyboard I've had auto correct off since its typically ridiculous with its corrections, but I tried to turn it on since I was making so many mistakes with the Nuu K1.

Auto correct is not compatible with this case.

Another annoyance was the first letter of my texts was not auto capitalized. So I'd have to press the shift button before typing any text.

Auto caps is not compatible with this case.

Thats pretty much when I realized that this keyboard isn't saving me any time like I thought it would. I'm spending more time capitalizing, punctuating, and spell checking than if I was using the iPhone's touchscreen. And I'm no grammar nazi. I use the occasional "lol" and "idk" but I also like to have the ability to send professional texts efficiently.

I'm sure this review will conveniently buried as unhelpful, but come on, no one should be buying these cases right now. This case is about $60 right now. Even if it were $20 I would say don't buy it. You're supporting mediocrity. Vote with your money.
