The iPhone Keyboard

by Erica Sadun

The official Apple iPhone keyboard video is here. Things that the keyboard does include intelligent type-ahead with word guessing, algorithms to correct for misaligned fingers, predictive resizing of a button's press zones, intelligent capitalization correction, and more. Yes, there's still not tactile feedback and I'm not sure if there's much auditory feedback, and I'm not 100% buying into the punctuation and numbers separation, but it is surely a thing of beauty in and of itself. Go watch the video to see design ideas in action. I can't wait to try this out.
