BlackBerry pressing courts to stop sales of Typo keyboards

Typo keyboard

BlackBerry is pushing to immediately halt sales of the Typo keyboard case for iPhone. While Typo insists that they are a small company that lacks the capability to produce a large quantity of keyboards, BlackBerry alleges that Typo has contradicted these statements, flooding the market with keyboards before an injunction could be imposed.

Typo previously stated that it had written and verbal orders from resellers. Because these orders could not have been negotiated after the preliminary injunction that BlackBerry recently won, BlackBerry says that Typo must have been making deals with wholesalers all along, going against their previous claim. The preliminary injunction against Typo came last month. Sales of the keyboard will be put on hold while the trial proceeds after BlackBerry posts its bond with the court.

BlackBerry pressing courts to stop sales of Typo keyboards


What percentage of smartphone users use keyboards? It can't be much dissimilar from BlackBerry's marketshare...

And that is exactly why BlackBerry should press on. Typo didn't have a case from the start. They keyboard was definitely copied.

The only blackberry keyboard that I really love was the one from the 8900 model, that's why I'm not buying this case. Horrible to type on it.
