I must be a masochist. I'm typing this whole review on a Bluetooth keyboard smaller than my two thumbs. Touch-type a dozen letters or so—until I make a mistake, wind up with some gibberish and go back to hunting and pecking once more. Yep, definitely a masochist.
How intuitive are modern keyboards? It can take a beginner ages to really get up to speed with a QWERTY keyboard, and without some form of formal training, most people wind up becoming one-finger typists.
The Trewgrip mobile QWERTY keyboard for iOS and Android devices is absurd. It's a handheld keyboard that puts the keys behind the board but arranges the letter in a weird way that somehow makes sense. So you hold the keyboard like you would a game pad and type by pressing keys on the back. It tries to make sense…
BlackBerry's QWERTY handset for BlackBerry 10 is official. Launched today, BB10 and its accompanying hardware do away with a lot of baggage that has been holding the company back, but the physical QWERTY keyboard is here to stay. This slim, lightweight phone with wonderful clicky keys is its future.
Blackberry Empire claims these are shots of RIM's N-Series BB10 handset that have leaked ahead of the official BB10 launch on January 30th. And if these are real shots, we're intrigued to actually hold the phone to see how it handles.
The hole RIM has found itself in is deep, dark, and doused in despair. And as much as the company's gambling on its new BB10 platform to pull itself up, an operating system's only as good as the phones running it. So take a good, hard look at this supposed BlackBerry N-Series device. It could be RIM's best shot at…
Back in the 1870s, a newspaper editor named Christopher Latham Sholes rearranged the letters on typewriters so that the keys would stop jamming. The result was the QWERTY keyboard... and his innovation has actually fundamentally altered how we think about words.
The iPhone 4 takes fantastic pictures, for a phone. With the myTouch 4G Slide, HTC's promising the first phone since the iPhone that takes better pictures and doesn't suck at, well, everything else.
Power Point presentations and their ilk are evil, nasty things, and will continue to glaze eyeballs over for years to come, sure, but as long as the presenter's tools stay cool we'll be all right, right?
You've had chances before to keyboardize your iPhone, but never with quite so much elegance. The BoxWave Keyboard Buddy is a smoothly built, adorably named iPhone 4 case that crams in a sliding Bluetooth keyboard.
If you're clinging to your BlackBerry because of physical keyboard, you just lost your last excuse: this TK-421 iPhone 4 case includes a physical keyboard that flips out whenever you need some thumb-tapping typing action.
Looks like the T-Mobile G2 will actually have an 800MHz processor instead of the 1GHz Snapdragon we were expecting. Which will disappoint the number hungry among us, but I'll wait to play with it before I write off an otherwise excellent looking phone. In better news, Android 2.2 and Flash 10.1 is a definite go…
Leaked images of Nokia's N9 reveal just how eager the fading brand is for a hit. Our phone needs to be popular—why not make it look like another popular thing? The QWERTY slider is a MacBook Pro doppelganger.
In the current smartphone market, you need to choose between LCD touchscreens (incredible UI versatility) and real QWERTY buttons (tactile feedback). But the MorphPad offers a third choice that's somewhere in between.
QWERTY is pretty much the king of smartphone text input. But there's a new challenger on the horizon. It's called Swype, it works with one-hand input and, yeah, it is pretty fast.
It appears that Samusng has dropped the InstinctQ branding on their upcoming Android-powered QWERTY slider to something that sounds like a lyric in a cheesy ballad. At any rate, complete details about the upcoming Sprint phone have been revealed.
