Play along - create a PinePhone keyboard
#8
There was some discussion before, for me these are the options how a keyboard could look like on the pinephone with an add-on.

1. Psion-like keyboard with real key travel in a clamshell form factor, like cosmo communicator.
2. Regular buttons with non-linear keyboard access, screen at an angle to keyboard. Like Nokia E7, Nokia N950 and fxtec Pro1.
3. Regular buttons with sliding keyboard, screen is parallel to keyboard, like Nokia N900.

The best compromise would be option 2, what fxtec did with the pro1, full keyboard, device is usable on a table and the phone can be used without the keyboard like a regular smartphone.
Please try to implement the tilting mechanis. And also, backlit keys is a must.
