ok, so the new iPhone doesn't have a physical keyboard. Has the bluetooth stack at least been un-crippled so that it supports the lovely Apple Mini Wireless Keyboard?

I don't think so.. It does also not support other bluetooth stack, so you won't be able to use it for dial-up networking for a laptop, like you can use ost 'normal' mobile phone to access the internet from your laptop while on the move.. thats a shame..

    mikkelbreum wasn't sure about the lack of bluetooth support in the iPhone for the Apple bluetooth keyboard, but I've been able to independently confirm that this is the case.

    Apple, this is lame! I want to use a real keyboard with the iPhone! Since you don't support this, I will not buy an iPhone and instead am happily using a Nokia phone which DOES support the Apple keyboard.
