Typo at #CESlive: The hardware iPhone keyboard maker talks typing and BlackBerry lawsuit

It's #CESlive and we're talking to Laurence Hallier, CEO of Typo. That's the Bluetooth keyboard for iPhone that American Idol's Ryan Seacrest is giving two big thumbs-up — and on! — to. It attaches to the bottom and makes it look like a classic portrait-style QWERTY keyboard device. What inspired it, and what's going to happen now that BlackBerry is threatening to sue? That's just exactly what we asked!

No offense, Rene. But I kinda wish it was Kevin doing the interview with Typo. Just want to see how he would react (I know he's a pro but I just thought it would be very interesting to see). Maybe it's for the best.

I kinda feel the same. I think Rene did a wonder job, but seeing as how Kevin just got a Typo... (And that incredible Porche BB! - sorry, off topic) ;D

For $ 2,000, was it? And based from Kevin's first impressions about Typo, it doesn't seem too bad at all.

If people like that keyboard then good for them. Sometime you have to move on. Change is good!
