BlackBerry Wins Court Order against Ryan Seacrest-Backed "Typo" iPhone Keyboard
A US District Court Judge recently granted BlackBerry a preliminary injunction against the Typo iPhone keyboard case for infringing on certain patents. The move effectively banned sales of the Ryan Seacrest-backed device. BlackBerry was able to establish a “likelihood” of proving that the Typo Bluetooth keyboard infringes on its patents according to Reuters.
BlackBerry said the following in a statement regarding the decision:
BlackBerry is pleased that its motion for a preliminary injunction against Typo Products LLC was granted. This ruling will help prevent further injury to BlackBerry from Typo's blatant theft of our patented keyboard technology.
Typo will continue to make and sell innovative products that busy people can't live without.

I can't see how this works as it would take up half the screen when not in use!

The only injury caused to blackberry is from their executive staff and board and their failure to adapt.
Are these the first people to attempt to add a keyboard like this to the iphone?

iPhone is a iphone adding a hardware that is world recognized as a blackberry keyboard is asking for trouble. Like with anything else you want to get paid just be the first or do it different. Patents are out there for that very reason to be able sue if you find a infringement.

I find it hard to believe that there is such a great demand for this that they are going through all of the trouble / legal costs. Are there enough people who need a keyboard so bad that they are okay with making their already long iPhone an inch longer?? Really?
