Android 4.2 Emoji Keyboard
We recently reported on the various Android 4.2 dumps, and the bundled goodies hidden within. One of the most popular of these would be the Android 4.2 keyboard, with it’s swiping gestures.
XDA Senior Member blindndumb has done more digging within the dumps, and has come across another keyboard that was hidden and hasn’t yet been posted. The keyboard in question is in fact an Emoji keyboard.
We’ve covered Emoji characters in past articles. They are an extensive set of icons, most commonly used by iPhone users and on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
The keyboard is two tone black and white, and contains a large number of Emoji characters. It also has the option to switch between 10-key and QWERTY layouts.
One drawback that you should be aware of when using this keyboard, is that the swiping gestures don’t work.
If you want to give the Emoji keyboard a try, check out blindndumb’s post.
