Omnio ships WOWkeys keyboard for $100
Omnio's unique WOWkeys keyboard dock for the iPhone or iPod touch is now shipping. It can work as a standalone, with the keyboard inputs typing onto the Apple device, or can hook up to a Mac or Windows PC where it will act as a traditional keyboard. In either case, an app is required.
The docked Apple device can also act as a multi-touch pad for PCs. A dedicated button will switch the keyboard's functionality between standalone and computer operation without the need to unplug it. There are twelve dedicated control keys for the connected Apple devices, including multimedia control, a home button, display power on/off toggle and a shortcut to album photos.
The WOWkeys costs $100, but doesn't include any specific apps with it.
