Phones are growing as big as tablets and laptops are shrinking every year. Great! Right? Devices are becoming portable in size and productive with added screen space. But once you compare devices, none actually give you both.
As you’re away on business and traveling via subway, would you write your weekly PR update on the keyboard of your phone/tablet or wait until you get to a coffee shop where you can pound out words on a full sized laptop keyboard? Of course it’s the latter because you’d never choose a phone keyboard over a full-sized one. Mobile screen size is great for consuming content but if you’re typing more than one sentence, you have to add a signature that apologizes in advance for typos. The major issue is mobile screens do not provide the tactile feedback necessary to create muscle memory for touch-typing like a full size keyboard does. Trying to type on them becomes a hassle that no one cares to deal with.
The accessories market for bluetooth add-ons supposedly solves this problem. But once you add a keyboard & stand to your tablet, you’ll need a table top to use your “mobile” device.
A real solution needs to include tactile options that work with the way you use a mobile device. If a tactile keyboard overlaid your software keyboard, you’d learn keyboard positions and type without looking- upgrading your typing experience. You could type on your tablet while engaging in an interview, on a train/bus commute, traveling, or recording measurements in the lab. In short, you could type while you experience.
