In either case, fans of the incredible shrinking gadget might like to know that Cervantes Mobile today unveiled the Jorno, a fordable Bluetooth keyboard that can turn a variety of compatible mobile devices into a pocket-size laptop.

croppedfolded_270x194.jpg (Credit: Cervantes Mobile) Folded up, it measures 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches by less than an inch, about the size of a deck of cards, and weighs just over half a pound. Unfolded, it tallies up at 8.5 inches by 3.5 inches by less than half an inch and locks into a rigid surface so you can use it on your lap or a nearby table/chair/sidewalk.

The keyboard--a sort of Stowaway Keyboard for today's mobile devices--comes with a detachable cradle to position your portable display in either portrait or landscape mode. As for typeability, the keys are said to be 15 percent smaller than standard keyboard keys, but we'll have a better sense of what that means for e-mailing, blogging, and essay writing once we get our fingers on it.

The itty-bitty keyboard is designed to work with a variety of Bluetooth-enabled Apple iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, RIM, and Symbian devices, including the Apple iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, Dell Streak, HP iPaq, Motorola Droid X, and Nokia N8 and N97, to name a few. It has a rechargeable lithium ion battery that supposedly supplies up to a month of wireless productivity per charge, based on "normal" usage.

It'll go for $99 when it's pocket-ready early next year, but it's on preorder now for $79.

Don't really need this unless you're writing a novel on your iPhone.

Just saw on Gizmodo an iPhone case with fold-out keyboard so you can make your iPhone into a huge Blackberry. Why you'd want to pay money for the privilege is kind of a mystery to me .
