Typo, the iPhone 5/5s case that Ryan Seacrest and Co. cribbed notes from BlackBerry, has had its fair share of attention. The overall design is remarkably similar to the keyboard on several BlackBerry devices, namely the BB10 powered Q10 with its frets. The two companies are currently in a fierce patent infringement lawsuit, but that hasn’t stopped Typo from running out of stock.
Apparently this gem was in development for “nearly two years” before making it available to the masses for $99 USD last month. The idea, according to their site, “was born out of a desire for efficiency” to carry only one device, not “one for typing and correspondence and an iPhone for virtually everything else.”
If you want your iPhone to have a physical QWERTY keyboard then this is something to consider. The keyboard looks like a BlackBerry and also keys feel like.
