Lenovo changes the keyboard

It is a constant, the keyboard, moving from typewriter to computer, to blackberry, to iPhone and it never changed. Then the genius at Lenovo after pouring a year of research decides to change the keyboard. They have come to the conclusion that what a laptop really needs is an extra-large “Delete” and “Escape” keys. This new feature will appear on the new ThinkPad T400s. Lenovo might have this the best time to move as the keyboard change has happened in the past with disastrous results. Last couple years in fact we saw that the seven inch netbook went by the boards because of the smaller keyboard. The ten inch model with a normal size keyboard seems to be a winner. The fact that device users have now become used to typing with thumbs on a Blackberry and fingertips on an iPhone could make a change easier. Lenovo made the two keys about twice as long in the vertical direction to fit the way people reach up, rather than to the side. The new design Lenovo claims will also cut down on accidental taps of the “End” and “Insert” keys based on the new layout.
