Future Mobile Keyboards

Two new Mobile Keyboard Concepts have been submitted to I4U on the same day. A new Trend ? ;)

First Up, Dutch company RL Technologies B.V. developed a new technology UniTap for small mobile keyboards.
Full QWERTY keyboard could be placed into less then 2 sq. inches footprint. UniTap keyboard preserves ergonomics of regular computer keyboard, doesn't require learning, and is cheap in production. This technology could be fine tuned and applied for wide range of mobile devices.

Second, Chicago Logic eliminates typing speed bottleneck on cell phones with Delta II - a fast, single-hand operation, alphanumeric keypad design that needs no learning or practice to operate. Delta II users type four times faster than they do on their existing 12-button cell phone keypads and twice as fast as they do on 26-button, alphabetically ordered keypads. Delta II accomplishes this by keeping it's letters in proximity to where they exist on the PC (QWERTY) keyboard.

Dana Suess, designer of the Delta II keypad states, "No matter how you prop up the current 12-button cell phone keypad with software, or rearrange the buttons into lines or circles, it is fundamentally limited as a text entry device."
