Ryan Seacrest – The American Idol host is convinced that messaging mavens need real buttons. To that end, he’s jumping into hardware and launching the Typo Keyboard for the iPhone 5 and 5s.
The Bluetooth case turns an Apple handset into a makeshift BlackBerry Q10, complete with backlit, sculpted keys that cover up the iPhone’s home button (there’s a small substitute key); we hope you don’t need multitasking, folks.
The Typo Keyboard will make its formal debut at CES in early January, and it should ship that month for $99. Thankfully, that means we’ll escape a sales pitch during New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.
