PinePhone Keyboard

The absence of a speaker to place next to your ear when the case is closed for a phone call makes using it for phone calls with the case closed is a bit weird. Perhaps a solution is using a bluetooth phone headset.


just wanted to share my experience about those:

1) If your fingers are about the same size as mine, it -is- actually possible to type with 10 fingers. But it takes getting used to nevertheless, as with any new keyboard I guess. Also, a lot of good will and enthusiasm goes a long way Smile

2) How to use the PP during calls was my biggest concern before I bought the keyboard. I have not tried using a head set yet (an issue with that would be that I would have to wear the head set all the time to hear the phone ringing..); So for me it works now this way: When I need to make/take a call, I just hold the phone on the left side of my head (as usual), pressing the keyboard to the left/rear side of my head. I am sure it looks funny as hell, but using a pine phone in public takes some courage already, so what the hell Tongue
Still beats holding the phone with the right hand - then, I end up having the keyboard in front of my face..
