Editors' reviewThis onscreen keyboard assists in effortless typing and browsing, but doesn't allow modifications and takes some getting used to. Palm Pad's unique structure and keyboard buttons are cool. We're quite awed at how we can type and browse the Internet by simply hovering the mouse over the simulated keys the application places onscreen. In our tests, Palm Pad quickly responded as the pointer rested on the key of choice. Still, we aren't too pleased that the keyboard layout, reaction time for selecting keys, and size and onscreen positioning of the keyboard can't be configured. Though Palm Pad's keys are contiguous, it's not the standard keyboard layout. The unique design definitely requires some acclimation, certainly not a good thing considering its stingy 10-use trial restriction. Despite the negatives, those suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome or just about anyone who can't or doesn't want to deal with a keyboard may find Palm Pad beneficial.
The innovative on screen keyboard has opened a new way of input to the PC world. The Palm Pad provides the users to input text and control their text editor or a Web browser with ease of one hand access even without a single click of the mouse. Users can move the mouse pointer over the keys and they can type the key to the active window. All the necessary keys in a standard keyboard are available at the shortest reach of your mouse. No more typing, no more clicks, no more pain in your hands. Reduce your stress and increase your concentration. Type while you eat. Type a Web address or navigate a page. Edit your documents single handedly. You can do all these with a bun in your hand. Beeps different sounds when a key is activated. No need for speakers to hear the beep.
Version 2.0 includes tab keys support to browse Web easily.
