Interesting. Personally I like the split thumbs layout on Win8RP, but there just isn't a phone big enough to make texting all that great for people like me with fat thumbs. Raised buttons are sadly still the best way to go.

This concept looks pretty slick. Not sure if it would be any better than just using your thumb on a normal keyboard though.

Nothing is better than giving user more options. I am pretty sure there are people with small hands and Titan huge cellphone. I however prefer voice to text since it is much faster (unless the system can't understand you).

Angled keyboard + swype would be great.

Only concern would be unnecessary truncation of displayed space because of the angle. Curious to see how this goes.

she got lucky, huh? That's one way to put it.
Get lost, loser.

Who the hell uses two thumbs to text on ANY device? It's called predictive text, had it since my Motorola L6 ffs..

[citation][nom]greghome[/nom]I have been typing with just 1 thumb on my Android for a whole year now.......[/citation]
This. It isn't that hard, people.
Still, I have nothing against a keyboard layout that makes it easier... I just don't get why it's a huge deal... Everyone I know with an Android routinely texts single-handedly.

With my sausages instead of fingers qwerty keyboard in portrait is hard to use with two hands - one hand is a no go. So this thing has valid point . Nice job Microsoft in bringing back the phone usability in a smartphone.
