Wow! iPhone gets a full-size, QWERTY keyboard. Will Apple crush it?

A company called Ion is showing two prototype full-size keyboards for the Apple iPhone. One uses flat, MacBook-style keys, and the other standard PC keyboard keys. Called the iType, the keyboard has its own battery, which may also be used to charge the iPhone. Will Apple allow this?

Would it not be beneficial to a companies profits to get permission from the beginning on things like this? I think it would be dangerous to invest in the cost of developement and prodution and marketing of such devices if there is a danger of them being banned. I don't know though, I guess it happens all the time.

It should be collapsible so that it's more portable.
