FasTap Video Diary

Article Comments  45  

Aug 22, 2006, 2:46 PM   by Eric Lin

We document our first 10 days with the LG AX-490, the country's first phone with a FasTap full-text keypad.

We recorded our adventures testing the FasTap keyboard over the course of ten days. The FastTap is designed to make text entry faster by adding a key for each letter around the traditional numeric keyboard. We practiced daily and clocked our speed to see if the FasTap is actually... fast.

You can watch the video here:

Or you can watch it with more options by going to You Tube or Google Video

The FasTap is first available in the US on the LG AX 490 for Alltel.
