Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way!

Dinik Anastasia Keyboard: Very Nice HTC Keyboard Skin
There are many keyboards floating around, but I still prefer HTC’s original keyboard. The only disadvantage of this keyboard was that there were no skins available, while other keyboards, such as Fingerkeyboard, do give you the ability to skin it.
Luckily, XDA Member dinik has now made the very first HTC keyboard skin that we know of, And I think it looks very nice! The cab is available for both VGA and WVGA devices, for Windows Mobile 6.5 and higher. It also supports landscape mode. The skin is still in beta stage, so there could be some problems.
DINIK – Anastasia – Keyboard v1.0
(As i know…Its the 1st ever Skinned HTC Keyboard…So i hope you wont critique me to much)
