What you see here is a fairly interesting video (btw, thanks Crunkgear). Someone has hacked a real keyboard onto an iPhone. Cool right?

Thing is, this is a glimpse of the future. Not the Macworld ’09 future, more like the WWDC ’09 type of future. The iPhone docking plug will kind of take a reverse role where it will now connect to peripherals whereas before the iPhone was the peripheral.

You’ll plug in a connector (or UWB if you are into that type of thing) into a monitor.   Keyboard/Trackpad/Internet of course will all be wireless.   Yes, the iPhone is your computer.  Your netbook.  In less than 1 year.  Cortex A8, PA Semi.
