Incredibly cool. Has anyone yet managed to crack getting a keyboard connected to the iPhone? I'd buy another one and break it specifically to be my netbook if I could just type on it with a real keyboard...

Here's a video of linux loading on the phone and being controlled by an external keyboard attached to the connection on the bottom via USB.

Pretty cool...
