Touch type

telus_fastap_02.jpgAs anyone who’s ever tried to type a name into their cellphone’s addressbook knows, T9 is a joke. It is about as coherent as a wino on a Saturday night. Fastap, a special keypad developed by Digit Wireless, should make text messaging less of a pain to use. Telus Mobility, partnered with LG, will be the first wireless provider in the world to offer a Fastap-equipped phone to its subscribers. The fast time-to-market is partly thanks to Telus investing in Digit Wireless.
