The News Minute | December 9, 2014 | 6:05 pm IST Texting addicts now have something to look forward to with a mexico based software company claiming to have invented the world's smartest and easiest keyboard here to replace the "qwerty" one that we currently use. "Fast type" is one of the most unique keyboards. It has only 6 options to choose from. It has 5 buttons for vowels and one long button with all the consonants stuffed into it. Though it sounds complicated, tapping anywhere on this long button gives you a consonant. If you want to type the word 'hello' tap anywhere on the long consonant button once, then tap on the 'e' button, then tap twice anywhere on the long consonant button and finally tap on the 'o' button. You've spelled 'hello' A simple user interface coupled with advanced artificial intelligence algorithm learns how you type and adapts to give you the right suggestions of words.  Fast Type is currently offered in English and Mexican and the company aims to create the next generation of amazing mobile products that look and work beautifully.
