The TK-421’s sturdy case includes a handy, built-in keyboard that connects to the device via Bluetooth™. The keyboard powers up with its own built-in, rechargeable battery. When not in use, a magnetic clasp keeps the keyboard securely in place. The keyboard works with all native iPhone apps that support keyboard input, like e-mail, notes and the Safari web browser.

Oh, and one more thing… you can even text with it.
