PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The Minuum keyboard, through its simplicity, improves your touchscreen typing. Existing keyboards leave you barely enough screen to interact with your apps, and you can't enjoy typing on them. Minuum eliminates the visual clutter of archaic mobile keyboards by adapting the keyboard to a single dimension." You have to watch the video. This is yet another example of a strength of more open platforms - like Android - that often gets overlooked: the ability to experiment with core aspects of the operating system. Whenever someone says there are no Android-exclusive applications, they conveniently overlook things like this. No other platform has stuff like this, and I certainly miss this experimentation on my 8X.

I am a huge fan of my 1984 IBM M-series keyboards and i use them almost exclusively. But i agree they can be rather noisy, so sometimes when i need it to be silent but still have that great mechanical feel without any clicking at all i use the ThermalTake Meka full size keyboard.
It is really nice, and just as the M-series it has a full numpad and no annoying windows keys that messes up my typeflow (i know it is just something to get use to, but as i have not, i prefer keyboards without them.)
Also a nice feature is ofcourse the built in USB2.0 hub and the size and weight is just perfect. Beware though, if you use pgUp or pgDn keys, there are none of those either on the Meka, just as there are no "multimedia" keys on any of my keyboards.
