CES 2015: Typo is back with redesigned iPhone keyboard

Times staff writer Andrea Chang takes a look at the Typo 2 detachable keyboard case for iPhones at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The Typo detachable keyboard case -- you know, the one that looks like a BlackBerry and was thus sued by BlackBerry -- is back after a redesign.

The Typo2 snaps onto your iPhone 5, 5s or 6 and gives Apple users the tactile feeling of pressing physical buttons. The iPhone 6 keyboard is $99 and the version for the older iPhone is $79; both are already available.

At CES, Los Angeles-based Typo -- co-founded by Ryan Seacrest -- premiered detachable keyboards with full-size keys for the iPad Mini and iPad Air. They are scheduled to launch in the spring with a retail price of $179.
