Samsung’s Developing a Folding Keyboard; Ugly but Useful

Will this affect text entry? Sure it will and the picture above makes it look quite uncomfortable. One would need pretty big keys and lots of training to get the typing right on this innovative Samsung device.

Also, we’re worried about the resilience of the keyboard, specially since it seems so thin and clumsy users might break it. Didn’t Nokia try something similar in the past?
