BlackBerry wins injunction, sales ban against 'Typo' iPhone keyboard

In a ruling handed down by U.S. District Judge William Orrick, BlackBerry was able to establish a "likelihood" of proving that the Typo Bluetooth keyboard infringes on its patents, reports Reuters.

That knowledge, combined with Typo's inability to challenge BlackBerry's patents, is enough to slap the company with a preliminary injunction banning sales.

"BlackBerry is pleased that its motion for a preliminary injunction against Typo Products LLC was granted," BlackBerry said in a statement. "This ruling will help prevent further injury to BlackBerry from Typo's blatant theft of our patented keyboard technology."

AppleInsider was able to take a look at Typo in January, just days after BlackBerry hit the company with its patent infringement suit. Overall, we found the device to be a well-built but cumbersome keyboard aimed at BlackBerry die-hards.
