Blackberry Files Patent Infringement

Whenever people come up with new products, it could be a whole new and exciting idea or it could be very similar to an existing one. In this case, Typo Products, a company co-founded by Ryan Seacrest, have created an iPhone accessory that allows users to type on a physical keyboard that looks very similar to the keyboards that are found on many of Blackberry’s handsets.

In a press release, Blackberry’s Chief Legal Officer, Steve Zipperstein, called this case a “blatant infringement against BlackBerry’s iconic keyboard” and that Blackberry will continue to “protect” their “unique design”.

As you can see above, it is obvious that the new Typo keyboard case is oddly similar to the keyboard on the Blackberry Q10.

The Typo keyboard case was released at CES 2014 and is available for pre-order from their website for $99 (without shipping) with orders being sent out this month.
