  14. 14. Patent ApplicationFIO-KeyBO patent has been filed to US, JP, KR, CN, IN & EUComments from European Patent Attorney, Alec Messulam:The invention of this application is concerned with how one can emulate the layout of a QWERTY keyboard, i.e. one with a conventional keyboard layout designed for use with ten fingers, using a telephone keypad or remote controller having three columns and four rows. It has previously been proposed to use one key to select more than one character but even if each key can select three alphanumeric characters, that still only allows for nine characters per row, whereas a QWERTY keyboard requires eleven.The solution offered by the invention is to place characters between keys and to require two adjacent keys to be depressed simultaneously in order to record a keystroke. Nowhere in the prior art has it been suggested to use the tip of one finger to press two keys simultaneously. Shift, Alt and Ctrl keys on a keyboard are actuated at the same time as other keys but not using the tip of the same finger, indeed not even using two fingers of the same hand.The invention offers for the first time, the possibility of one finger text entry using a keypad having the layout of a conventional telephone while allowing the operator to find all the characters intuitively in the same relative positions as they would occupy on a conventional ten-finger keyboard. Neither this objective, nor the method by which it has been achieved, is suggested by the prior art. .2011/12/14 FIO Technology Inc. confidential 14
