10-keyless mechanical Keyboards?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Was wondering where I could purchase some from, im looking to be able to replace the keys with english/katakana similar to that of the new toshiba APU equipped netbook.

If anyone can help me out or have some info on it, or even a place just to browse for some that would be great, thanks!

EliteKeyboards has tenkeyless Leopolds for pre-order (might be out already though), and KeyboardCo/Amazon have Filcos; those aside, you can also wait for us to get tenkeyless OCN-Duckys, but there's no ETA on those yet.

The Filco's look pretty nice

Is there any info on the the replacement keys? Or am I just expecting too much?

If you want a Japanese layout, you're going to have to buy a Japanese board. The layout is too dissimilar to really do well on an US board, at least not without some extreme remapping, and even then you'll likely have to make some pretty serious sacrifices.

My sister types fine in Japanese on a US board. Apparently it's quite easy to do.

If you want the legends I'd recommend getting a JIS board anyways; they tend to have more options in keyboards too.

I've never been fluent in reading/writing myself - didn't get much opportunity growing up. The only Japanese people I do know (who were all reasonably fast typists) didn't seem to make the switch very well though - I think once you get used to the JP layout it's rather hard to adjust to having fewer keys.

Phoenetically, hiragana and katakana are the same, you can switch between either with a single keystroke. Keys are generally labeled in hiragana because it's more commonly used, although I have seen a few boards that used both.

No? I think I mean katakana.

I saw the layout on a new APU based Toshiba netbook, and really wanted to have that lol, but if it's impossible to reach right now then oh well.

Hiragana is the main alphabet, and Katakana is usually used for writing foreign words that have been incorporated into Japanese. Thus Hiragana would be the more likely alphabet to appear on a regular Japanese keyboard.
