Apple introduces new split keyboard for iPad thumb-typing in iOS 5

Scott Forstall’s demo of iOS 5’s new iteration of Mail gave him a chance to show off a new iPad keyboard. It is a split keyboard on either side of the screen that can be reached with the user’s thumbs. Typing would be similar in speed as typing/texting on an iPhone.

Now typing in portrait while holding your iPad is much easier. This will be useful for iPad professionals who work while standing, walking around, on the subway, standing in line, etc. iPad is now even more mobile.
