In a local linux geek community some people showed interest in physical keyboard like those in Blackbery/Nokia N900. I am not a fan of physical keyboards but what about making it an optional accessory, some kind of snap-on. Decided to write it here for consideration as it could eventually bring Librem into more people as touch-only is a standard today and there are not many alternatives…
I would potentially be interested in an external keyboard accessory if it could be made for a reasonable price. Best of both worlds. Preferably using a wired connection.
This wouldn’t necessarily need to be developed by Purism, though they could help by designing the phone in a way that makes it easy to attach things to it.
There is some option in the market, even if they are not the most beautiful thing.

It would be okay something like that tailor made.
I think a better choice might be some type of pogo connection that could double as a docking connection. and have the KBD be a slider.
It’d be awesome if they just put to bevels (or rails) on the sides like the old casio calculators so third parties could make add on cases with added functionality/modularity. I want a kickass speaker to blare Kraftwerk on the bus and drown out the young’uns !
