I'm a bit confused. In the keyboard settings of my iPhone are two options: "sofware keyboard layout" and "hardware keyboard layout"

But what is the latter? Isn't they keyboard totally "software"? What does it mean? And why do I need it?

With iOS 4 and above, you can pair a Bluetooth keyboard to the phone. That's the hardware keyboard for which you'd be specifying the layout.
