This study will examine if a chorded keyboard will allow us to build more compact portable computers with faster input rates than the present portable computing input devices. The two step approach includes designing and developing a chorded keyboard and an alphanumeric mini keypad along with the actual usability experiment. The usability experiment will compare the input rates of the chorded keyboard to the mini keypad in different applications. Hence, the goal of this research is to compare the input rates of chorded keyboards to the input rates of mini keyboards for portable computers.
