So just out of curiosity, where is the touchpad (mouse area)? I can’t really tell from the pictures. This looks like it might work well with my XBMC Media Center PC.
I currently use a Motorola Nyxboard Hybrid but it suffers from less than stellar performance.
@AngryFish This is just a news item, so I haven’t had any hands-on time with the Bonepad. I believe the keyboard area is also the touchscreen area.
This seems like a bad idea to me. I don’t see how I could type accurately without tactile or visual feedback.
I can touch type on a standard keyboard because I have tactile feedback from the keys and can see the screen to correct mistakes.
I can thumb-type on an iPhone/android because I have visual feedback directly from the keyboard as keys get highlighted, auto-correct works reasonably well, and the screen output is at most 2 inches from the keyboard making it easy to check.
This seems to combine the worst of all worlds:
1. no tactile feedback
2. no visual feedback on the keyboard
3. The output feedback requires glancing way-away from the input device so I have to completely refocus to check.
I can see it might work if you’ve got an OS that support auto-correct for text input…. Maybe it’s primarily useful as a mouse with the keyboard as an “if you must…” afterthought..
The entire typing area is the touchpad. I’m looking for a good review. Best, Glenn
