• Typo Still Sold Keyboards After Ruling Against Them

    Judge Orrick has agreed to BlackBerry's claim and has let the motion for contempt of court proceedings to continue. His Honor agreed that BlackBerry has shown that Typo had been selling keyboards in violation of the court order.

    It seems that the makers of the Typo Keyboard believe that they are above the law. So much so in fact that they're continued to sell the BlackBerry knock off keyboard even after a court injunction ruled they need to stop. Typo, backed by Ryan Seacrest, have sold 11,000 of the iPhone accessory keyboard since the injunction was put in place by US District Judge William Orrick.

    BlackBerry has gone to the court again asking for another court injunction to stop the sale, calling Typo's actions, "brazen and blatant." It is a little foggy whether the new request applies to the new Typo 2 keyboard but the BlackBerry request does include a mention to an online store that has the Typo 2 on pre-order.
