Comment: They're gonna love QWERTY! (Score 2) 65

by baabuzz (#43133943) Attached to: SXSW: How Mobile Devices Are Changing Africa
Given that the majority of African mobile users have been using an Alphabetical keyboard (T9), they're gonna love their first confrontation of QWERTY! On a touchscreen no less. The keys will be smaller than their fingertips. The reassuring tactile buttons will be gone. And the intuitive letter order will be messed up. I wish them more than luck. :-)

I cannot draw a cart, nor eat dried oats; If it be man's work I will do it.
