Perhaps the most impressive iPhone accessory ever made has been announced by ION, which has produced a MIDI keyboard complete with a landscape dock to interface with the Apple smartphone.
There are 25 keys, a pitch bending rocker and eight physical buttons to control the keyboard and it has been designed to be used alongside the iDiscover Keyboard application.
There are many instruments that can be emulated using the software and it can also be used to record any piece that you create whilst tinkling on the ivories.
Both the iPhone and iPod touch can be slotted into the keyboard and it can be hooked up to a PC or Apple Mac using a USB cable to extend its functionality into the realm of the desktop computer.
No news on the pricing or release date of this accessory have been given, but it is likely to arrive at some point before the summer and may be at a price point that will deter purely casual users.
