Ryan Seacrest can no longer sell this Blackberry copycat iPhone case
Apple fans should tip their hat to BlackBerry this time.
That was the hope of Ryan Seacrest and his company, Typo Products, when they launched the Typo keyboard case. Now, roughly a year after it debuted, the peculiar and unloved accessory has officially met its demise at the hands of the company that it tried, fruitlessly, to copy.
In announcing the end of its lawsuit against Typo, Blackberry noted the terms of the agreement, which will shut down the case for good.
“As part of the settlement, Typo Products LLC, Typo Innovations LLC, Show Media LLC, Hallier Investments LLC, and Laurence Hallier have agreed to permanently discontinue selling anywhere in the world keyboards for smartphones and mobile devices with a screen size of less than 7.9 inches,” BlackBerry’s statement reads. “Typo Products LLC, Typo Innovations LLC, Show Media LLC, Hallier Investments LLC, and Laurence Hallier may continue to sell keyboards for devices with a screen size of 7.9 inches or larger. Other terms of the settlement are confidential.”
Typo’s website has scrubbed all listings of its smartphone cases, leaving just a small selection of tablet cases remaining.
