Eleksen announced that a new fabric keyboard using the Elektex fabric sensor and a mini-joystick would be available for the HTC made Smartphones. The keyboard, designed for use with Orangeâ€™s SPV will be available in France, Denmark, Switzerland and the UK.
A notable feature found in Eleksenâ€™s fabric keyboards is the ability to use it as a virtual joystick. By placing a fist on the â€œHâ€ key, users can emulate the use of a joystick to play action games. Since it is a fbric keyboard, it is essential that the keyboard is used on a stable flat surface.
Eleksen also showed a mini-joystick for the smartphone. It is essentially a thumb joystick, with the fire button which can be accessed by one of the fingers. This joystick is set to add a new dimension to games on color smartphones and PDAs.
As of this posting, no prices were disclosed yet.
