ThinkGeek has launched a product page for its upcoming TK-421 iPhone Case with Flip-Out Keyboard. Available in separate versions for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, the TK-421 boasts a flip-out physical Bluetooth keyboard with a magnetic clasp that keeps it in position whether opened or closed and a built-in rechargeable battery that charges over USB, as well as a two-piece design and open access to all ports and controls; it is unclear whether the case offers access to the rear camera and flash when the keyboard is flipped out of the way. ThinkGeek’s TK-421 iPhone Case with Flip-Out Keyboard for iPhone will be available in limited quantities beginning in mid-November and will sell for $50.

The product page says, “Magnet based clasp keeps keyboard in position whether flipped in or out.” The last thing the iPhone (and its flaky compass) needs is a magnet attached to it.

I was wondering if this will work with the Ipod Touch as well.  My wife uses her Ipod as a “laptop” of sorts.  We have laptops, she just prefers her Ipod for facebook etc.  I really would like to get this but cannot find any info on wether it will work or not.  It is not the ipod with the camera, but the one just before, I believe 4th generation. Thanks for your help.
