Microsoft intros Sculpt Comfort Keyboard with backspace-spacebar key

SculptComfortKeyboardTop_Web Microsoft is introducing its first keyboard to feature a split backspace-spacebar key. This design choice is the result of internal research that showed 90 percent of typists use only their right thumb to press the spacebar, leaving a lot of unused real estate on the left side of the bar . In this case, though, there’s a split space bar, whose left end can be programmed as a backspace key. Microsoft-made keyboard, you’ll find Windows hotkeys — specifically, keys that correspond to new features in Win 8, like the Charm Bar

The Sculpt Comfort Keyboard will be available soon at the online Microsoft Store and other participating retailers. Estimated retail price is US$59.95.
