I’m not actually sure how practical (as a portable solution) TextBlade will be in reality. I’d like to open a discussion to that end with those of you who have used it, with portability as the context.
I mean, you MUST have a flat surface to work on, which you also need with a bluetooth keyboard (for all intents and purposes, a competing device). The pocket portability is an obvious advantage, but if I have a bag to carry a tablet or laptop around, then the same bag can contain my bluetooth keyboard.
Maybe you don’t use it with a tablet or laptop/netbook. If you’re using it on the road with a mobile phone, with a handy flat surface to work on, then the portability of a TextBlade beats a bluetooth keyboard, since a pocket is all you need.
What do you think? How handy has the TextBlade been on the road? Have you found it hard to find a surface on which to type? Is it more convenient in these scenarios compared to a regular bluetooth keyboard? Are there any situations where a bluetooth keyboard would be more useful?
