You mean this P300?craigix said:This is something which is being worked on right now, most likely they will be similar to the keys on a P300 samsung phone, a membrane coated in a plastic where the keys are, something like 1mm max movement but with feedback when you press them.
They have to be very thin and this seems the best way of doing it, of course this could change later in the month, if anyone has suggestions based on maybe work they have done on such devices we would like to hear from you
Yeah. PLEASE, make keys as silent as possible and make soft backlight. So I can type at night in bed and not to awake my wifecraigix said:if anyone has suggestions based on maybe work they have done on such devices we would like to hear from you
Magnulus said:With a design choice like that P300, will the buttons also be of the rubber kind that kind of hangs a bit to your fingers? That would be great, because it would prevent slippage, which I would suppose is the biggest problem using a keyboard this small.
Depends what you mean by rubber. The harder the better in my opinion. If they're squishy then they're slower to type on.
Many problems I see with this. First off, do you remember as a kid if you jabbed those rubber keys too hard and they got stuck under the plastic and either broke or where a pain to get out again? Well Im not saying anyone who buys the pandora will be a heavy handed oaf and be smashing the keypad, BUT what if someone else gets hold of the pandora? A button-bashing friend? A young relative on a visit to the family home @ Xmas? A dim-witted girl friend? Careful what you wish for, you may end up with mashed keys >.<Megagun said:Myself, I love calculator-style rubber keys: the kind that stick to your fingers a bit.
Also, I'd really appreciate it if the keys weren't 'stuck' together: as in it'd be great if there was some 'plastic pandora case' inbetween keys...

see how they have a clear coating over the actual lettering or whatever on the button then you wouldn't have to worry about it rubbing off the letterings on the buttons.
Um. Or you could just do what the gp2x did and make it part of the mould. I honestly thing an entire clear keyboard though would likely be kinda wierd looking and expensive to make.
