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.

They also sell a less noisy model "S" (silent?) for open workspaces.

Oh, and I also like some gaming keyboards from Logitech, they are silent too.

The "S" stands for soft. I got myself a Professional S model late last year and while not completely silent, they're much quieter than most keyboards I've used, mechanical or otherwise.

Too bad the "Linux Penguin" key (to replace the Windows logo key) offered by DasKeyboard isn't compatible with S models, though it'd still be pointless for me even if they did, since I run OpenBSD not Linux.

I want a key that says "Mod 4" ;)

For the record, it's expensive, but there is a manufacturer of Cherry MX Brown keyboards who will print whatever you want on that key.
