TextBlade Revolutionizes Typing Experience On Smartphones/Tablets
For someone like me who has always been fond of mechanical keypads, typing on a touch-screen is never a cup of tea! Either I type way too slow or end up tapping the wrong keys. Now it appears like all these issues are a thing of the past.
The TextBlade from WayTools has introduced a new portable keyboard which is around one-third the size of an iPhone. It comprises of three detachable pieces which can be magnetically joined together to create a small keyboard. If you pay close attention, you’ll note that the keyboard only comprises of eight pieces, with each one containing multiple keys. According to developer WayTools, the specific design is described as “MultiTouch Key Technology”.
The most prominent chunk of the keyboard is a large space bar. Its size can be attributed to a rechargeable battery inside it which, according to WayTools, can last for a full month – though I’m more inclined to believe that it ought to vary from person-to-person usage.
The keyboard utilizes the bluetooth technology and is reported to be compatible with both Android-based and iOS devices. One of the best things about TextBlade is that it only weighs 1.5 ounces which makes it significantly easy to carry than other portable keyboards. As for its price, it will set consumers back $99 (around £65 or AU$122).
Personally, I’m more of a try-it-before-you-buy-it kind of guy and for me; it’s hard to come to a conclusion without actually getting my hands on this thing. However, WayTools has provided a short demonstration video which shows the device in action. But still, it seems like a potential solution for all my typing issues while using a smartphone or tablet.
