Is there a way to connect a mouse and keyboard through your Iphone to a computer you remote to using vnc or logmein ignition? I figured there would be a bluetooth set or something but so far my search has turned up nothing.

It doesnt look like its compatible with the iphone.
I found this http://www.appletell.com/apple/comment/a-bluetooth-keyboard-for-the-iphone/ which is more or less what im looking for. Now I just need a mouse. i am trying to use my phone as kind of a remote desktop machine.

Hi Night_Wolf87,
In my travels with the iPhone I have yet to see this. There are a number of "hack" sites that claim to have made a KB and have a number of youtube videos of them working (but no solution you can but), but I have certainly never seen a mouse!
To be honest I am not sure if it will be made (at least not by Apple!), a KB and mouse solution pushes the iPhone away from its "touch" idea. If you really want remote control then I think you are better with a mini laptop.
Just my twopence worth!
