The idea behind this cover with a keyboard is to increase typing speed, maximize user screen space, and possibly use the device for better handling when taking pictures.

Whatever the reason, it seems this Clicks keyboard brings back some nostalgia for some users who at some point had a relationship with a Blackberry device.
