With the emergence if the iPhone and now the Tablet/Slate PCs, everyone is obsessed with touchscreen technology.  Some of us, however, still love the hard buttons of the QWERTY keyboard, and for good reason.  Historically, hard keys are faster, more responsive and a hell of a lot more accurate.

Korean company Mobience agrees, however they’re not about to invest their money in just any old QWERTY.  While still jumping on the “touch” bandwagon, they’ve managed to come up with an innovative compromise, the small QWERTY.

Mobience smallQWERTY is a wireless device that connects to touchscreen devices, allowing users to text via the virtual “touch” QWERTY keypad. There are no details on how Mobience smallQWERTY really works, or whether it’s coming to market soon, but check out the videos. It could be a good application in the near future, especially with the flurry of soon-to-be-released tablets. (www.mobience.com)
