Hello.
I found Cosmo is very interesting… BUT I noticed that it has quite inconvenient keyboard layout.
Enter button is too tall and there is nothing between Enter key and Backspace key. This kind of design is VERY annoying sometimes. Because it's very easy to miss and hit Enter instead of Backspace.
All my keyboards and laptops have Backslash key between Enter and Backspace keys.
I wonder if there will be options with sane keyboard layouts…

Well. I looked at russian keyboard layout for Gemini PDA and was little shocked. It is based on UK keyboard layout. It makes Gemini quite difficult to use it in Russia because we all use US keyboards in Russia.
Anyway I tried to contact Planet Computers via email. Let's wait for their answer.

If you use US keyboards anyways, it is possible to select the US keyboard instead of the Russian one.

You don't get the point. I need Russian keyboard layout based on US keyboard. Just like on my laptop I'm using right now.

I got an answer from Planet Computers. I was told that they tested keyboard with horizontal enter key and concluded that vertical key is easier to press.
Regarding Russian layout they will answer later.

I'm lucky to have an old Psion lying near me. I switched it on and tried to type some text until I accidentally pressed enter key with backspace key simultaneously. Looks like we have different anatomy after all.
