Ryan Seacrest shows off Typo keyboard on video
If for some reason you missed it, Typo is a snap-on QWERTY keyboard for the Apple iPhone and is supposed to increase your typing speed by 50%. Priced at $99, it is a wonderful idea except for one major issue. Whoever was responsible for the design of the actual QWERTY apparently was sitting in front of a BlackBerry Q10 at the time, because the Typo keyboard looks just like the famous BlackBerry keyboard right down to the frets. That brought BlackBerry's lawyers into the picture and a lawsuit was filed.
The idea for Typo came about when Seacrest had to carry two phones, an iPhone and another unnamed handset with a physical QWERTY that he used for messaging. Was it a BlackBerry Q10? We don't know at this point, although that information will certainly be outed under oath during the trial. And as founder of Typo, and an investor in the company, Seacrest just so happens to really use one on his iPhone as this short video will attest to.
