The Virtual Keyboard has been in the news many times over the last year but the company had so many problems bringing it to market it seemed it would never ship. It is shipping now and CNET has reviewed the laser keyboard with several PDAs and have published a thorough review. They did not seem to like it very much and only ranked it 4.6 out of 10 (poor).
Indeed, we had problems getting used to the lack of physical keys, and on our first try, we produced a memo rife with typos. Accuracy improved the more we used it, but we never felt fully confident or comfortable when typing documents. On the upside, the keyboard was responsive to our touches and registered every keystroke. Battery life is rated for two hours of continuous use, and we found that to be accurate. Of course, you’ll get more mileage out of the battery with casual use.
