    When people bring up a Surface Phone and that device supporting a detachable keyboard, most think of a floppy cover that requires the phone to be sitting down on a surface to be used.

    But Why couldn't MS just make the device a detachable keyboard that is sturdy enough to hold up the Phone?

    Someone started a thread recently to see how many of you would love a physical keyboard, and something like this would be the perfect solution.

    If you can't really get the gist through words, then here's a rough sketch I made showing how it would look/work


    Excuse the sloppiness

    This would be great! It brings the physical keyboard experience back to smartphones, while aqlso serving as a stylish, and somewhat protective flip cover! and those who don't want their touch experience compromised don't have to use it!

    So whaddyuh think!?!?

    My concern was making a hinge that was slim enough, yet sturdy enough to support the phone when open and not flex. I think WP would need to be more landscape friendly too
