Califone My First Keyboard
Califone today unveiled its My First Keyboard input device. The child-oriented keyboard is color-coded to develop better typing. With red marking both numbers and vowels, young typists can spend less time searching for keys as they write, the company says. The casing is built for durability over style and is made of ABS plastic that Califone claims is resistant to typical levels of abuse. A row of quick-access buttons at the top also contrast the keyboard with adult models: instead of media buttons, the device has a row of buttons for common text functions such as copying and pasting, easing the learning process for menus and key commands. Plugging in through USB or PS2 ports, the My First Keyboard ships now for $29.
