The fun is over. BlackBerry and Typo has ended their dispute with each other, with Typo on the losing end. BlackBerry sued Typo back in 2014, and won with Typo paying a massive fine to BlackBerry, however, that did not stop them from having a contempt of court to sell their keyboards away. Today, that is set to change as BlackBerry again, has the upperhand over Typo and Typo has agreed to settle the mess that they started.
Typo, is now essentially prevented from making keyboards for any smartphone in the future, that are smaller than 7.9 inches.
As part of the settlement, Typo Products LLC, Typo Innovations LLC, Show Media LLC, Hallier Investments LLC, and Laurence Hallier have agreed to permanently discontinue selling anywhere in the world keyboards for smartphones and mobile devices with a screen size of less than 7.9 inches. Typo Products LLC, Typo Innovations LLC, Show Media LLC, Hallier Investments LLC, and Laurence Hallier may continue to sell keyboards for devices with a screen size of 7.9 inches or larger. Other terms of the settlement are confidential.
