Typo 2 Keyboard Case for iPhone 6

Typo 2 is the new keyboard case for iPhone 5/5s and 6 produced by Typo. It deliberately provides users the benefit of using a physical keyboard that a lot of people have missed after the introduction of the touchscreen smartphones. Since many of us still dream of using the keyboards again but seemingly impossible as the smartphones are now occupying majority of the market that ultimately disposed the traditional keyboard, every mobile phone manufacturers are up for the touchscreens. But not BlackBerry. The traditional QWERTY keyboard is an iconic trademark of BB and although the company is struggling right now in competing against the Androids and smartphones with their touchscreen interface, the company believes keeping its keyboard provides them the uniqueness against the odds. On the other hand, BB would not care if some smartphone manufacturers will be adapting the keyboards again. But what if somebody said it has keyboard for the iPhone and it looked like a BB’s keyboards? BB won’t like that, naturally.

Checking the price of iPhone 6 now at Amazon, it costs $789 (16 GB) and $1,054 for the 128 GB while the Blackberry Passport’s price is $599.99 (16 GB) and $645 for the 32 GB. The price of the iPhone is still costly but what’s the big deal Blackberry would give you its latest phone model and pay you almost the price of your iPhone? Is this a desperate move on the part of Blackberry who seemed to be meeting its final days as it can’t keep up with the mobile phone trends? If you are an iPhone user, would you bite the trade off? That’s the big question but obviously Blackberry is starting to get the attention with this marketing strategy. The Great Deal The promo started on December 1, 2014 and will last up to February 13, 2015. Depending on the model of your iPhone, there will be a corresponding amount starting from the iPhone 4S up to iPhone 6 excluding iPhone 6 Plus. On top of that, Blackberry also kicks in an additional $150 for each iPhone trade.
