Smart phones may be a big market, but they are nowhere close to bringing down Nintendo and Sony’s handheld consoles.

As you might know from my article on the subject I have a physical keyboard on my Android phone, this was something I insisted on when I bought it as typeing on a touchscreen, as we all know, is a pain.
Well 3qubits have tried to change that by designing a new input method aimed at mobile devices. The 8pen.
The best way to understand the 8pen is to have a look at the video on their site, it takes the basc concept from Swype that you don’t lift your finger during a word but takes it further with a system that is based on gestures rather than the absolute position of the keys.
It takes a lot of getting used to, I am still slower on this than I am on the default keyboard after a week of use and much slower than on the physical keyboard, but I am getting faster so who knows? With a bit of practice I might not be insisting on a slide out QWERTY for my next phone.
