Messaging with Keyboard
Here we would like to show how it is like typing a message on the Omate TrueSmart with a standard Android keyboard. Watch the video and you might notice it's pretty accurate. There is a reason why the key hits are accurate - Ultra-Sensitive Touchscreen. It's more accurate, more sensitive than your average Smartphone. Some of you may have experienced bad touchscreens before (not sensitive, not accurate), then you'll know perfectly that the sensitivity and accuracy of a touchscreen makes a huge difference to the experience. Well this touchscreen is more accurate, more sensitive than most phones.
Originally planned as a stretch goal, we do not have time to wait for it as a stretch goal anymore. The decision has already been made to add Ultra-Sensitive Touchscreen as a free upgrade for everyone :-). Because we know having good and proper text input is important to defining Smartwatch 2.0. There'll be another Update talking more about the Ultra-Sensitive Touchscreen. With the sensitivity and accuracy, we know the on screen keyboard will have accuracy better than you are used to now.
Here you can check out the video of typing a message : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64cse6MQY34 For the design intention of Omate TrueSmart which is messaging and not writing a novel, the onscreen keyboard serves its purpose well enough.
We also took the opportunity to check out the Fleksy keyboard, a revolutionary cool keyboard technology with an "invisible" mode. The moment we saw it, we love it.
Check out their Demo video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuLFcZ0O05M

With the Fleksy keyboard you can also change the size of the keyboard, useful for some apps, and also other settings like themes etc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cTxxXX4XpE
And of course you can add any keyboard you like since Omate TrueSmart ships with full access to Google Play App store! :-)
