More key layout newsFebruary 16, 2009
New blog post from ED:
While the mould for the keymat is currently being produced, we’re concentrating on working more on the keyboard layout.
We mostly scrapped out old layout since we had too many important keys missing – so there are no Umlauts or language specific keys on the layout, it’s a plain English keyboard with a compose key to do special characters.
That layout is not final yet, it’s our current WIP.
It might look weird and mixed up at first sight, but there’s one major difference with a standard PC Keyboard: You only use two thumbs for typing on that one, so it’s much more important that the most used characters are convenient to reach (which can be a problem when using the Fn Button).
