With just 8 keypad buttons, this keypad can carry out the entire features of a conventional keyboard. 8 button consists of 5 vowels (alphabet a,e,I,o,u), which counts for 30~40 percent of keyboard usage, and number pads/keys along with space-key. Rest of the other consonants can be typed in by pressing keys that pop up when the vowels keys are pressed. The consonants that are sequenced between vowels are arranged in alphabetical order, making this keypad easily accessible to children and non-English users who are not accustomed to conventional qwerty keyboard.For example, press 'a' to type in 'a'. Press 'a' then drag it toward the center of the screen to type in 'b.'
