Typo 2 physical keyboard for iPhone 6, 5s and 5 now shipping

Typo 2 physical keyboard for iPhone 6, 5s and 5 now shipping
If you want a physical QWERTY keyboard for your iPhone, you can now order a Typo 2 - the redesigned version of Typo (which couldn’t be released earlier this year because BlackBerry sued its maker). Unlike the first edition of the accessory, Typo 2 no longer resembles a BlackBerry keyboard.

Typo 2 is available for iPhone 6, costing $99, and for iPhone 5s / 5, costing $79. Free US shipping and 120-day warranty are included. While the keyboard will cover your iPhone’s Home button, it has its own key that acts as a Home button. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to use Touch ID while having a Typo 2 attached.

At the moment, there’s no Typo 2 for the iPhone 6 Plus, because “the phone is so big, it makes it top heavy.” However, the company is working on new designs, and may release a keyboard for the iPhone 6 Plus next year. That’s also when it plans to launch a Typo keyboard for iPad. According to Re/code, which received an image of the iPad keyboard, Typo already invested $2 million in its development.

Besides the US, the Typo 2 for iPhone 6 / 5s / 5 can be shipped to the following countries: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom. Any takers?

Don't worry, people should get use to this tall because iPhone grow taller every two years.

Even though the keyboard looks stupid doesn't change the fact you're a troll

Another idiot, it's obvious with bigger screens that they'll be taller but your alleged jokes are corny and troll infested. Oh and both of you learn proper English

People who want qwerty so desperately they would have chosen bb passport, simply because like commercial, it works wide. Unlike this, narrow and too tall

There's probably more people in Wyoming than there are passport users

If you're going to troll, at least do it right. There have been 400,00 Passports released which falls very short of the population of Wyoming.

He can't help it. Mxyzptlk and intelligence do not go hand in hand.

Looks trashy. Prediction is a flop.

Definite fail. It negates one of the defining features of the iPhone's it's made for, the touch ID. If iPhones want a BlackBerry, they should just get a BlackBerry.

The key arrangement looks nothing like BB's. Even the Droid Pro was more similar and Motorola didn't get sued.

It's cool in my opinion just something new they should do something like this for many different types of phone.

That's looks like a pain to use. It's looks too stretched.
