Seacrest Out: The Typo iPhone Keyboard Is Dead

BlackBerry has successfully ended the short but dazzling life of Typo, the hardware keyboard for iPhone spearheaded by longtime BlackBerry user and iPhone switcher Ryan Seacrest. In a short press release announcing a settlement, BlackBerry notes that according to the terms of the agreement between itself and Typo, the latter company will stop selling any kind of keyboard for devices with a screen size smaller than 7.9 inches.

That means theoretically, a future Typo keyboard accessory could adapt to fit a huge iPhone 8 Plus Plus or something if Apple goes crazy, but for now it’s curtains for those wanting to have their modern smartphone software ecosystem and type on it, too.
