iPad Split Keyboard Concept: Yay or Nay?

by on April 21st, 2010

Typing on the iPad is fairly easy since the onscreen keyboard is so large. It’s possible to type with your thumbs in portrait mode like you would on your iPhone. However, attempting the same in landscape is very difficult. What if you could somehow split the iPad keyboard in half, and recreate the iPhone keyboard in landscape mode?

That’s exactly what the following concept portrays, from srobbin.com:

What do you think about such a concept?

    It's a cool concept because I find myself thumb typing in portrait like on the iPhone. But the real-estate in landscape is so big I might struggle jumping my focus from one side of the scene to the other.

    interesting but i prefer the large keyboard. It make sense if you don't have a flat surface to put the iPad on to type with all your fingers vs. only 2 thumbs like holding it somehow because you have to stand or walk.

    I really wish they would allow for a miniaturized (iPhone size) version of the keyboard. I bought an iPad but wasn't able to get the official Apple Case so its “naked” and I find it very slippery to type on my lap. Using the large keyboard with one finger seems to be a waste of energy. They should just provide a miniaturized one as I am very fast single finger typist on my iPhone.
