It's Complicated

There is a new keyboard out for the Android OS, called 8pen.

The premise is correct: QWERTY keyboards where created for the typewriter/computer, so they lead to clumsy typing and many errors. But the droid solution seems worse than the problem it's trying to solve.

Watch the 8pen demo (that's the name of the new keyboard). If you are not dizzy by the end you are a more adaptable animal than I am.

My bet? It will be a flop, though it might eventually lead to better typing systems for smartphones than the one we currently endure.
