More text input options for UMPCs

Umpcmessagease_1I just flew in from Florida at 1:30 this morning and boy are my arms tired. Actually, my whole body is tired after walking around Disney for a few days and then dealing with return flight delays. In any case, I’m back and on my way to NYC in a few short hours to meet James, Dave and the brave MobileTechRoundup listeners who want to see the faces behind the voices. (Disclosure: you won’t be impressed!)

Before I head out, I thought to check in on my RSS feeds and I’m glad I did. Matt Miller has a brief, but excellent article over at The Mobile Gadgeteer about text input options for UMPCs. The lack of a keyboard for UMPCs continues to raised as an issue and Matt mentions usable options like ritePen, Fitaly and MessagEase; I’m familiar with the first two, but not the latter, so I’ll check it out after hitting the Big Apple! Oh and if you’re still bashing UMPCs because they have no keyboard, swap the name "Mobile Slate Tablet PC" for "UMPC" and then give them a second chance. ;)
