Just grab the keyboard stand from out of your backpack. Or, you can use one of these:

Someone should write an iPhone app that does this over Bluetooth.

at that point, why not just use your laptop? I still don't get it I guess...

Plenty of people are very comfortable with thumb-typing on a Blackberry-like thing or typing on an iPhone. You always have the phone with you, and it's a lot less overhead than getting out the laptop.

The "getting out the laptop" overhead is a killer for me. I will often go an entire weekend at home (when I have work needing to be done, etc) without switching from iPhone to laptop because I just couldn't be bothered getting out the laptop and firing it up. To be fair though, part of that's probably because my laptop is 5-6 years old, standby doesn't work and the battery life is average.
