New Keyboard for Tablets Project

If you have a tablet, regardless of the make or size, you probably think that there must be, somewhere, a better keyboard. This, in fact, has been a reality for virtually all devices since the invention of the touch keyboard. Due to the size and resolution of some of the newer tabs out there, most keyboards out there will either not work or look very (and I do mean very) distorted. Thanks to XDA member mssmison, there may be hope ahead because he is currently working on a new design of a multi-touch keyboard for Galaxy devices. Once he is done with this part of the project, the work will shift to larger screens with higher resolutions like the Motorola Xoom. The layout is quite original as there are not too many keyboards out there with split profile. When you have a large screen (10+ inches), something like this can become quite useful.

The dev will release his creation soon, so be patient and follow up the developments. And once he does release it, please remember to leave some feedback.

Info:A free basic multitouch keyboard for tablets, (a paid version with more features may come later, or I may just update the free version)
Features:

  • Fast
  • Word prediction
  • Multitouch
  • capability for multilanguage support (depends on interest I guess)
  • FREE (My favorite words ever!)

You can find more information in the project thread.
