Alternate Input Methods For The UMPC


Matt Miller of ZDNet’s Mobile Gadgeteer has been looking into alternate text input methods for his Samsung Q1 UMPC. As a long time PDA user he examined Tablet OS editions of Fitaly and MessageEase (pictured here), as well as RitePen, which gives you write anywhere capability.


For the shortshighted among us who think a computer isn’t a computer without a keyboard, you might want to take Matt’s advice and check out some of these alternate methods of input. The beauty of it is that there are choices available to you if you’re willing to look.

And if you’d like to look further I can highly recommend James Kendrick’s blog articles on alternate input methods for the Tablet PC.
