Typo Innovations today announced that it will begin selling its iPad Air keyboard case at Apple Stores and through its website, according to Re/code. The announcement comes just two days after Typo reached a settlement with BlackBerry that will prevent it from selling Typo for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus due to its similar look and functionality as the physical keyboard found on most BlackBerry devices.

Typo iPad Keyboard
Typo for iPad Air is a detachable keyboard featuring built-in autocorrect technology and an adjustable stand, although unlike Typo for iPhone, the product enters a market crowded with multiple accessory makers that sell virtually identical keyboards. Typo retails for $189 in the United States and is compatible with both the original iPad Air and iPad Air 2. The company is also accepting pre-orders for an iPad mini version of the keyboard.

The keyboard case itself seems pretty nice, but there are 3 big blunders with this.

The price- Just way too high. There are some great alternatives for literally half the price.
The product page- I don't even need to explain it. Just look at it.
The company name- You don't need to take a Marketing 101 class to understand why "Typo" is an extremely poor choice as a way to label your company.

If you can't beat them, join them. You think Apple is afraid of MSFT's Surface line? Here is your answer. I am sure this will be followed by the iPad Pro 12" model. But nothing will change if Apple doesn't update iOS for iPad to be more suitable for productivity tasks.
Apple's afraid of the Surface line so a third party makes another (of many) keyboard for the iPad. Gotcha.
