Ryan Seacrest funds development of Typo keyboard case for iPhone
TV host Ryan Seacrest and a venture co-founder have invested over $1 million in producing a keyboard case for the iPhone, the <a href="http://typokeyboards.com/">Typo Keyboard</a>, sources say. The pair are eventually expected to invest over $5 million in their company, since other keyboard products are already in development. Seacrest <a href="http://allthingsd.com/20131205/ryan-seacrest-wanted-a-keyboard-for-his-iphone-so-he-invested-1-million-in-one/">claims</a> that inspiration for the iPhone case came from the frustration of friends and peers carrying two phones: an iPhone as their main device, and a second phone for "typing and correspondence."<br /><br />The initial Typo case took two years of development. It comes in two parts, and provides BlackBerry-style typing as an alternative to iOS' software keyboard. Some other features include backlighting, a battery indicator, currency shortcuts, and its own style of auto-correction. The case is shipping in January, but can be pre-ordered now for $99.

Buyers must have an iPhone 5 or 5s running iOS 6 or later. The case connects to a phone using Bluetooth 3.0, and recharges via a micro USB cable.
