The emergence of iPhone has given many developers a new shot of making a better living off of their skills. The platform has revolutionized multiple industries and pushed many industry readers scrambling to keep up (e.g. GPS makers). But there is more to iPhone hardware than iPhone accessories. More companies are realizing the business potential of the iPhone, which is why they are taking time to develop products that either work with the iPhone or are complementary to it in a sense.
Take ION’s iDiscover Keyboard. It’s a very cool keyboard for music lovers that lets you get a more realistic playing experience on your device. The keyboard manufacturer happens to have an iPhone application as well. So you can think of this keyboard as an accessory for the app. Regardless, the concept is neat and goes on to show the potential the iPhone platform has.
Who can forget about Parrot AR.Drone for iPhone which happens to be my new favorite toy. It’s a quadricopter that you can control through your iPhone. Not only that, the device allows you to spy all around you and see what the cameras on the drone can see. The below video demonstration should give you the idea:
FLO TV has also made its way to iPhone. Now you can get a FLO TV receiver with a Mophie battery for your iPhone. The receiver is built-in so you can charge your iPhone and watch TV on it at the same time.
iPhone apps are fun to play with, and they can be quite fun in that. But iPhone hardware business is on the rise. Hardware solutions that can help you get more out of your phone and play games in a realistic fashion will always be popular. The iPhone is a gift that keeps on giving, especially if you are an entrepreneur.
