Typo Settles with BlackBerry – Out the of Keyboard Biz

Posted by at 11:45 am on June 1, 2015

BlackBerry today announced it has settled its legal disputes with Typo, the maker of keyboard accessories for the iPhone.

As part of the settlement, Typo agreed it will cease selling keyboards for all devices with screen sizes smaller than 7.9 inches — which effectively puts the company out of business. Typo specifically sought to bring the physical keyboard experience to the Apple iPhone.

BlackBerry charged in two lawsuits that the original and second-generation Typo keyboards copied its hardware designs. Other terms of the settlement were kept confidential. Typo has not said if it will regroup and make larger keyboards for other devices.
