rb-03 Built-in keyboards are usually operated with the thumbs, since touch typing and
rb-04 hunt and peck typing using the fingers are pretty much out of the question.
rb-05 Devices with a touch screen interface often use an on-screen keyboard, or handwriting
rb-06 recognition for inputting text. This has a couple of drawbacks.
rb-07 The keyboard, whether it's an on-screen version or not, strongly reduces
rb-08 the amount of available "screen real-estate".
rb-09 On top of that thumbing or thumb typing puts a lot of strain on the thumb,
rb-10 which is not as dexterous as the fingers are.
rb-11 A good solution would be to use speech recognition,
rb-12 especially since most of these devices often already have a built-in microphone.
