Remember Typo, the QWERTY physical keyboard case for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S that a US court said could not be sold, since it infringed on BlackBerry’s patents. Well, the Typo2 no longer resembles BlackBerry’s QWERTY keyboards and is now for sale. It is also available for the iPhone 6.
The Typo2 for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S costs $79 (around £50), while the Typo2 for the iPhone 67 costs $99 (a little bit over £60). Note that if you want to use the Typo2, the case will cover the home button. This means that you won’t be able to use Touch ID while Typo2 is attached. Customers in the US will enjoy free shipping and a 120-day warranty.
For international buyers, including the UK, the company says, “Typo is happy to ship to certain countries outside the United States. However, purchases sent to addresses outside the United States may be assessed local taxes, duties, etc. upon arrival at the responsibility of the buyer. The shipping firm that delivers the package may likewise impose additional brokerage fees or other surcharges as part of the customs and tax process.”
As for the iPhone 6 Plus, unfortunately, Typo2 is not available for the phablet, due to the device being “so big, it makes it top heavy.” The company, however, is cooking up a new design for the phablet as well a Typo keyboard for the iPad for 2015.
