For the touch typist, the tablet and smartphone experience is often a frustrating one. While it is possible to key in characters without looking at the virtual keyboard, efficiency and accuracy are a whole lot easier to achieve with physical points of reference. Tactile overlays like the TouchFire can help, but you still lose at least half the screen to the keyboard. Wireless keyboards are a much safer bet but add bulk to the travel pouch. Zack Dennis has developed a virtual keyboard replacement called ASETNIOP which can be made invisible, is based on the QWERTY layout and allows for input using only ten touch points.  Read More
