Ryan Seacrest is betting on a Blackberry-style keyboard for the iPhone which allows users to use their full display screen while typing.

PC Mag reports that the TV host helped co-found the Typo Keyboard Case[1] which he and his co-founder will spend more than $1 million and as much as $5 million on. The iPhone product looks like a Blackberry keyboard and it can be attached under the smartphone to give users the entire display screen while typing long e-mails or notes. Additionally, the company says that the product doubles typing time and reduces typos.

Ryan Seacrest appears to be following the steps of stars such as Ashton Kutcher who have been investing on technology. Shipping for the Typo Keyboard Case is expected to begin on Jan. 13 for $99.
