 Abstract
The QWERTY type keyboard is a classical device that has been used for computers for a long time. The keyboard design of mobile devices like smartphones is an important issue to consider because of the limited space on the touch screen. This paper presents a design for symbol allocation on the QWERTY type soft keyboard. A 27-cell model, including the full stop (.), is proposed in this paper. A QWERTY type keyboard for smartphones is mainly known for its spatial compatibility, whereas the characters of the ANSI keyboard are allocated to the shoulder positions for functional auxiliary input methods such as the long pressing method.
