CES: Trewgrip mobile QWERTY video demo

We lay our fingers on this upside-down smartphone and tablet keyboard

LAS VEGAS: FOLLOWING its failed Kickstarter campaign last year, the team behind Trewgrip decided to keep the ball rolling and fingers typing and brought its bizarre looking QWERTY keyboard to CES.

The company said the device should take around a week to master, with the keyboard split in half on the bottom of the unit and the user's tablet or smartphone mounted on the top.

It's certainly a departure from the norm and won't be for everyone, not least because it's pretty huge and weighty. However, for those who want to be able to work while standing, it could be a winner. The device we tested is just a prototype, so we'll have a full review when the device makes store shelves later this year. µ
