    Well I made this image of the iPhone to see how big it is in person. I set it in photoshop to be the same dimensions of the real thing. I also used a image with the keyboard on screen so you can get a idea for the size of the keyboard. So all you have to do it print it out.

    For me it seems like it wouldn't be hard to type on this but I have normal sized fingers. But people that used it at macworld when it was announced said keys would enlarge before you touched them when your finger was hovering over so maybe it will be easier.

    I for one was shocked by how small it is

    No, no. You're supposed to print out the pic from the OP. He scaled the dimensions of the pic in Photoshop so it will print out at actual size. Then you can practice typing on it from the printed sheet.

    the size of the image on your computer screen is gonna depend on the resolution of your screen. you need to print it to get an accurate size.

    You cannot rely on images on a monitor, the size will vary by your resolution and other variables. If you're really dying to know, print an image out and make sure that the printed copy matches the same dimensions as those specified on the Apple website.

    no that is the right size, print it out and see, I printed it out and messured it it came out to the 4.5 long and 2.4

    try it for yourself

    I opened the image in photoshop and set the dimensions to the ones on the site, I didn't rely on my monitor

    did you print it out or just look at it on your screen? if you go by the size on your screen its going to be different for everyone, well at least people using different screen sizes and resolutions.

    you have to print it out to see the size

    I wanted to see how big the keys really were because of all the people saying how hard it will be to type on it. Also I wanted to get a feel for the size of the thing

    There's no such thing as "hover" on common touchscreens. What happens with the iPhone keyboard is that the letter is show enlarged above the key when you press... and only registers when you release. You're supposed to be constantly watching that to make sure you have the right key, and if not, slide your finger in the right direction until the correct letter shows and then let up.

    Yes, the keyboard is tiny. I keep telling web developers to do what you did, and see how big or small their own buttons are.

    this is not common screen though. Watch the new High Technology video. It can tell how far your finger is from the screen and can allow the hover concept.

    It actually uses a static charge from your hand to sense your fingers.

    Yea I know that touch screens dont do this but when the guy from gizmodo used it at macworld he said the keys became larger as his had approached the phone.

    Heres his quote
    Maybe I misunderstood what he was saying, im not sure if he is trying to explain how the keys enlarged when his finger hovered over or if he was hoping it was a feature they would include

    yea in in the demo it shows the screen still picking up things from the finger when it is not touching the screen.

    Exactly! It detects the charge from your hand and therefore knows how far away your hand is. Quite smart actually. It would be cool to see this used in a game or something.

    Sorry to hijack the thread.
