We’ve seen a couple of ridiculous add-ons built for the iPhone, but this latest accessory is definitely one of the more functional ones we’ve seen.

Although this isn't yet totally official, an iPhone hacker has managed to make a Palm keyboard work with his jailbroken iPhone. I’ll be the first one to admit that it doesn’t look like the best pairing in the world, but it is evidence that with enough patience and technical skill, it is indeed possible to get an external keyboard to work with the iPhone.

Now, for all those iPhone hackers out there who want to build on this latest discovery, how about coming up with a Bluetooth alternative that will support the modern slim keyboards that are out now?
