Text Keyboard

A set of small keys specifically designed for entering text, beyond the standard 12-key numeric keypad.

Standard mini-keyboards have a "QWERTY" layout - a miniature version of a computer keyboard.


Alternate layouts such as Fastap blend numeric and text keyboards to create a keypad that's smaller, yet equally fast for entering large amounts of text.
