Weekend Watch: W10 keyboard on phones

Mark demoes the new keyboard in Windows 10. It looks mostly familiar but there is a new dot cursor and mic button.

I’ve found cursor keys quite useful to have (SwiftKey has a row of this) but this seems like potentially a better layout. The only thing that concerns me are current bugginess. Mark shows the cursor being moved to a different location but then the delete button removed a letter from the original position. Very odd oversight.

Another is that the placement of the dot is inconsistent. Sometimes it’s there and sometimes it’s not.

Good thing this is just a preview.

Long press of the number button brings up emoticons. It might not necessarily be better than the old long press for quick numbers.

Finally, the mic button – for a more system wide talk to text. It looks to work really well.
