Sure. But the iPhone apps I've worked on have screens specifically designed to accomodate a keyboard. Think of the Facebook "comment" screen, where it's a white box on top and keyboard on bottom. Same with Foursquare, etc. Do you picture these apps just having a blank bottom area where the keyboard would be, or do you think developers will embrace another new layout permutation, adding to original iPhone & iPad?
I think it's really unlikely Apple would do anything to fragment the UI space further. The consistency for users and developers is one of their main competitive advantages over Android. You start making developers code/test different form factors and UI paradigms and the platform starts getting as messy as Android.
