TyPO In­tro­duces Phys­i­cal Key­board for iPhone 5/5s

Key­board case to of­fer smooth, tac­tile typ­ing ex­pe­ri­ence

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT -

While key­board ac­ces­sories are rather com­mon for the iPhones, the TYPO Key­board of­fers a dif­fer­ent look, plus it also re­ceived the back­ing of pop­u­lar Amer­i­can Idol host Ryan Seacrest, who has in­vested US$1 mil­lion on it.

The TYPO Key­board is ac­tu­ally a Blue­tooth-en­abled case that is de­signed for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s, while also lend­ing a sim­i­lar ap­pear­ance to the Black­Berry Q10 smart­phone. Us­ing the TYPO phys­i­cal key­board can help to re­duce ty­pos up to 50 per­cent, re­sult­ing in less er­rors. It also charges up fully in less than an hour.

The in­spi­ra­tion be­hind the prod­uct came around when Ryan Seacrest was hav­ing din­ner with his friend, Lau­rence Hal­lier, the CEO of Show Me­dia. They no­ticed that their friends and col­leagues tend to carry two phones: one for typ­ing, while the iPhone is for ev­ery­thing else.

The TYPO key­board will be shown at the Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show (CES) 2014 in Jan­uary, with the prod­uct sched­uled to ship on the same month. Other key­board for smart­phone and tablets are also in the works, ac­cord­ing to TYPO.

The TYPO Key­board for the iPhone mim­ics the Black­Berry key­board de­sign.
