Typo Keyboard for iPhone 5/S – AgNerds Rejoice

Chuck Zimmerman 6 Comments

Typo Keyboard for iPhone 5My agnerd order has been placed for a Typo Keyboard for my iPhone 5S. I am eagerly waiting for it. Why? Because I like typing on real keys. I’ve become “better” at typing on the virtual keyboard but . . .

Typo has apparently pissed off Blackberry though. For some reason they think they “own” the physical keyboard. Last week a judge ordered a preliminary injunction to restrict sales of Typo keyboards but they are still for sale ($99).

I’ll write a review of the device after I have a chance to use.

Here is what the claims are:

Type Faster w/Less Typos – Users report typing 50% faster and with less Typos – Touch keyboard brings back 40% more screen space for typing

Full Backlit Keyboard – Backlit Keyboard for typing in low light environments

Battery Indicator – See how much battery you have at any time

Quick Currency Keys Access – Quick access to all your most necessary currency keys

TYPO smart Typing – Custom TYPO Smart Auto-Correct Enabled

You can order one here.

    It’s not that Blackberry is claiming they own the keyboard but Typo has decided to make it look identical to the Blackberry keyboard. Why? They could have designed it million different ways. But it won’t matter because this thing is a flop. Have you not read the reviews? It doesn’t feel anything like the Blackberry keyboard as it has a very flimsy and wobbly feel. Also there is no way to turn it off, meaning it will keep your phone on and drain the battery when in your pocket as slightest pressure keeps the key pressed. Prepare to return it.

    The objection is not “keyboard”, but blackberry style/layout of keyboard.

    Apple recently got Samsung phones banned for a similar look.

    I think you are right, I don’t think Apple should allow to own anything either. Copyright law is a joke anyway.

    Has nothing to do with them thinking they ‘own’ the keyboard… take a look at a picture of the BlackBerry Q10. Typo is a total rip-off.

    I have the best of both worlds now and just love my AppleBerry. I have a business case for the 5s making the keyboard untouchable and I always have good battery usage. However I do miss the Auto correct when connected. Blackberry needs to step up with their products to win back the Business users. I was a Blackberry user since 2009. The reviews for the Q10 were horrible and just upgraded to the 5s Jan 2014. Trust me it was very hard to make the switch.
