    Much of the blackberry community hates it, even after the suit. After the suit, they come out with the typo 2, looking a little less like a Blackberry keyboard. So now, everyone is hating on how sh*ty it looks. But my take is that if BlackBerry made this for z10, z3, z30 owners, even if it's typo 2, everyone here would be going bananas for it. They would say things like "best of both worlds! Large screen and keyboard".
    Anyway, it's decent business for typo 2, even if it's a little over priced. But people will buy

    FrankenPhone... you have seen the Passport?

    At least with the iPhone / Typo combination you have the standard 16x9 screen they most everything is designed to work with. Plus you can just pull off the keyboard it you are go somewhere and want a smaller device to carry.

    Maybe if BlackBerry created a Keyboard for the Z30 (or it's replacement with a better screen), and sold it in a kit or as an accessory....

    Ummm, it's a Frankenphone because it's a patchwork add on trying to be something it's not. The Passport was desk from the ground up to have a keyboard.

    Iphone Internet defense force or what? Are we on Imore or something lol? But back to why typo 2 looks like shyt and the passport doesnt. The typo 2 has a funny oh wow we are absolutely not trying hard to copy blackberry configuration. The Passport has something no one has seen before. Easy enough to understand?

    BlackBerry should just make a keyboard like this to work on iOs, android and windows phone. Oh wait typo will then sue them for copying the concept hurr durr.

    Typo Keyboards, much like its namesake, is looking more and more like a mistake. A $1 million mistake for Ryan Seacrest.

    Typo2 is a cheesy, cheap add on device. Actually saw one on the plane the other day and it was laughable to watch. Badly balanced and without the shortcuts, the user was constantly moving from keyboard to screen in an inefficient manner. Undoubtedly, one of the worst pieces of engineering ever. There is no doubt that the typo2 hurts Apple branding.

    Yup, funny how iFans have become so defensive lately. That's what happens when you sit on your ****.
