HalfKeyboard
Wednesday July 11, 2001 - 5:54 PM EST - By Lisa Rosselli

Conclusion

Although overall typing speed is reduced, I really like this product. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a keyboard for everyday use like responding to emails, address/memo entry, and light to medium document editing. I was amazed with this keyboard when I first saw it, and still am. This product is a real intellectual marvel -- especially to those who use stylus centric PDAs.

The Matias Corporation also manufactures these HalfKeyboards for Palms, Windows, Linux, and Macs. They are the perfect solution for CAD designers, graphic designers, people who spend way too much time with spreadsheets, gaming addicts, and the disabled. Anyone who uses another data entry device (like a trackball, or a graphic tablet) as much as they do a keyboard will benefit from this product.
