Do You Want Touch Typing On A Tablet Enough To Use This Chorded Keyboard?

If tablets had one Achilles heel preventing them from personal computing dominance, it would be their awkward touchscreen keyboards. But the makers of the ASETNIOP keyboard think they've found a better alternative. An on-screen keyboard with just 10 keys that lets you access every letter of the alphabet with multiple key presses, like playing chords on a piano.

The demos make it look easy to use, but the system seems pretty convoluted and getting the hang of it will most likely require a lot of practice. But what do you think? Does the ASETNIOP have even a remote chance of replacing the classic QWERTY layout? Will anything ever? [ASETNIOP via Dvice]

    Typing on a pad has been one of my major misgivings about losing my laptop, I think this is a good idea it's a skill that will require learning much like we all learned the querty keyboard, but I am sure someone else will come up/has come up with something, better similar so I think the fight for it being a standard that everyone uses is a long way off.

    wow. that looks horrible to use and learn.

    The problem with writing on a touch screen isn't too many buttons, it's a lack of tactile feedback. Lets solve that first.
