Some important notes about this design:

  • Green button on top, left is dial. Red button on top, right is hang up. Could double as enter/escape.
  • Blue buttons are shift, symbol, backspace and localization.
  • Localization button modifies the basic Latin symbols to produce the variants used in many European (and non European such as Turkish) languages.
  • Yellow buttons make the numeric pad.
  • Provides a full keyboard, yet the device is significantly smaller than any other comparable.
  • The design above uses a 2.6" screen, which is the minimum size for VGA.
  • Keys are bigger than, for example, those of a Treo.
  • Allows for one handed operation. Absolutely necessary for a phone.
