Lost keys June 27, 2007

Posted by reverseengineer in iPhone, Video.

The big question with the iPhone is the keyboard – or lack of one.

For a lot of folk, this looms as the deal breaker; it’s a paradigm shift not many feel they can get used to. Some are skeptical if smooth glass would ever displace QWERTY (including myself). But Apple claims their system is workable, with built-in intelligent spell checkers and a fault-tolerant virtual keypad that dynamically changes the size of the press zone. Apple recommends getting used to typing with one hand first, and later when you get comfortable, start with the two-thumbs thing. Ok. We’ll see.

In the meantime Apple has posted a video on how to use the new non-keyboard on their site, and like the previous vids, are viewable in S/M/L sizes, plus a download link for the L version, another hefty 67MB download. Go ahead, it’s your bandwidth.
