If you are looking for a new on-screen keyboard, then check out this new offering from Comfort Software. The Comfort On-Screen Keyboard is multi-language and supports multiple keyboard templates, so just about any need can be met. Several of the templates are standard keyboard layouts, but they also have some customized for UMPC use. Check out the corner version below. From their website:
- Displaying the icons of shortcuts in Windows® and popular applications.
- Displaying characters actually typed in any language, which allows you to type text without a localized keyboard.
- Customizing the keyboard appearance (the position, size and number of keys, the color and the skin) with the possibility to select it from a large number of available templates (without having to buy a new keyboard )
- Color areas for fingers (if necessary) in case you learn to touch type. It is convenient because when you press a key, you can see it pressed on the on-screen keyboard!
Now, myself, I’d really like this combined with a capacitive touch screen, particularly if it had the tactile feedback like Apple patented a while back. Then I would have the best of both worlds – a slim, slate style Tablet PC and a good typing experience. Now that would get my vote for a WOW device.
