I agree with eskerahn as well. And if we don’t get scandic layout I hope there will be an easy way to map the keys.February 27, 2019 at 11:02 pm #5302
I also very much would like a scandic (norwegian) layout. I too like eskerahns suggestion best.February 28, 2019 at 11:03 am #5691
I love the BB K1 – every single HW key can be mapped for short and long keypress from home screen to different apps, i.e. you have 52 shortcuts.
For me, it is important to have possibility to define own layout. I use mostly US layout with CZ layout in qwerty. But CZ layout has as standard qwertz. If I can choose different mapping (CZ qwerty), then OK. I don’t need the labels on HW keys same as currently selected layout, I can remember the keys and I don’t look at the keyboard during writing, so I would prefer to be able define my own layout for the HW keyboard.February 28, 2019 at 12:36 pm #5784
+1 for EskeRahn’s suggestion.February 28, 2019 at 1:12 pm #5838
yeah i wont buy the phone if it doesent come with a keyboard that has åäöFebruary 28, 2019 at 1:32 pm #5862
Created an account to say that I’m looking forward to a Swedish keyboard layout. :)February 28, 2019 at 2:07 pm #5886
I very much agree with EskeRahn’s idea about the layout. I would prefer printed layout, of course, as I need ä with even my name, but even having the blank keys would be much better than having keys in weird places or having “wrong” markings on the keys.February 28, 2019 at 2:26 pm #5910
I also hope we will be able to map the keys after our personal preferences, and hopefully in a way so the nerds amongst us can share the layouts for the benefit of the less tech savvy users.February 28, 2019 at 2:46 pm #5928
Because there will be a lot of users from another countries the most needed keys is the accents.
This is very big problem on every sw keyboards. The accents key is missing even it is very simple to add it. I did not find such an kyeboard. So the users must press the key and wait until the characters are shown and then slide. This is “VERY” slow when you want to write with accents.
Hope the hw keyboard will have one key for accents or the shortcuts for accented charactersFebruary 28, 2019 at 2:53 pm #5930
tehtavienhallinta well I agree that it is important that we can type the national letters. And preferably with national print. But would it be a deal breaker for you if a few keys gave what you expected by the standard national layout, and not what is printed on the key tops? In my suggestion we are talking 5-6 keys.February 28, 2019 at 3:01 pm #5945
As long as I can map the keys easily I don’t really care what they say tbh, but a “normal” scandinavian layout would ofcourse be preferable.February 28, 2019 at 7:29 pm #6202
Is swedish or nortic qwerty planned for this summer or more of a work in progress for the future?February 28, 2019 at 8:11 pm #6228
How about Fin/Swe/Nordic layout keyboard like this. And another color forsymbols for example orange symbol from from number keys and as already yellow from alt + something. Colors might be some other than yellow/orange. That theres no change of they look like same. Or like on laptop keybord symbols have own place if the came with sift or alt.February 28, 2019 at 8:32 pm #6243
When can we expect other keyboardlayouts?February 28, 2019 at 8:53 pm #6276
For this reason I used the blue modifier key on N900 for my own keyboard map to write letters which has accents (so áéíóöőúüű).
That way I was able to type very fast using its hardware keyboard.
I expect a similar behaviour using this device as software keyboards method of waiting / selecting another letters is really uncomfortable.
