Abstract

In accordance with development of many smart phone applications, the importance of keypad that can be used in smart phone has been increasing. In this paper, we design the Hangul smart phone keypad to type a Hangeul characters more efficiently by considering the characteristics of the Hangul characters based on the existing research on smart phones keypad. The proposed keypad in this paper, when we placed the letters on the keyboard, minimizes the travel distance by using the frequency of characters and the associated frequency between vowel and consonant. In addition, we define an assessment model for evaluating the performance of the keypad and verify efficiency of the proposed keypad. According to the result of the experiment, the proposed keypad is more efficient than other keypads.
