I first thought the bottom tab key of the TextBlade was a trackpad, but I don’t think it is. I would like the option of adding a small trackpad below a tab key to provide cursor control for Android.
One of the most unproductive things about the new touchscreen paradigm, especially in Win8, is that users want to touch the screen to point, click and move the cursor rather than use antiquated touchpads and mice. Every movement away from the keys is lost speed and productivity. I don’t understand high-end Win8 tablets that feature stock keyboards without a trackpad or Lenovo style pointer stick.,
I’d like a trackpad for cursor control in Android apps, and some Windows apps accessed over a remote connection (e.g. VNC). Can this be added as an option in the future?
It would need to be small to sill be portable and travel with the text blade in the user’s pocket. I’me very adept at using the Acer laptop trackpads on their 11.6" netbooks that are approximately 2.5" x 1.5" It’s smaller than a business card, but allows me to control the cursor on a HD display with a minimum of thumb movement. I use this small size trackpad for everything in Windows, including video and audio editing, photo editing, etc. I think something this size would still keep the TxtBlade form factor small enough while still be very usable.
