Folks at Apple.pro report that Apple is working on three prototypes for the next generation iPhone.

Apple.pro claims that one of the iPhone 5 prototype includes a slide-out keyword.

Taiwanese site Apple.pro which has a strong track record when it comes to Apple related news, reports:

There are three iPhone5 prototype one is a sliding cover which Is the introduction of the keyboard after the side cover

Apple.pro claims that the other prototype is an upgraded version of iPhone 4, with upgraded battery and an 8-megapixel camera compared to iPhone 4’s 5-megapixel camera and with no major physical change just like the transition from iPhone 3G to iPhone 3GS.

If you are a long time iPhone user who is used to its on-screen virtual keyboard, might find the need of a physical keyboard unnecessary. However, some folks insist that its one of deal breakers. It will be interesting to see if Apple decides to finally launch an iPhone with a slide-out keyboard to cater to such users.

Do you really miss a physical keyboard while using the iPhone? Do you think Apple will launch an iPhone with a slide-out keyboard? Please share your views in the comments section below.
