How would you feel about a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Keyboard Case? Yeah, that’s what I said, keyboard case. According to everyones favorite leaker (Evan Blass) @evleaks, that’s exactly what someone has created. It’s not clear if this is just a troll post from Blass or a legitimate product shot. It’s also not clear if this is made by Samsung or a third party accessory maker. Whoever has made this, was channeling the old Palm gods when designing it, take a look below.

It’s like a mutant hybrid monstrosity that is hellbent on burning your eyes out with its plastic construction and early 2000’s design. The elegant design of the new S6 is lost inside this ill conceived idea and I’m really hoping this is nothing more than a joke. This keyboard looks like it adds a good amount of bulk to the phone and it certainly doesn’t look like it would be comfortable to pocket.
What do you think? Good idea or go back to the drawing board? Does anybody really want a physical keyboard on their smartphone? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below or on Google+, Facebook and Twitter.
