TenGo, by Xrgomics is a new text entry solution for Pocket PC
TenGO is a soft keyboard that uses only 6 large alphabet keys to type. Fewer keys makes it easier to type, while larger keys allows you to type fast, and for much longer, without missing or hitting the wrong keys. Using the same letter positioning as the conventional keyboard makes searching for letters easier without any re-learning.

TenGO is specially designed for mobile devices using only 6 large keys to type. The technology allows you to type with fewer and larger keys yet still retaining the familiarity, feel and flow of the conventional QWERTY keyboard. Fewer keys makes it easier to type, while larger keys allows you to type fast without missing or hitting the wrong keys. The QWERTY design means that you do not need to spend time to relearn a new keyboard.

Using the same letter positioning as the conventional keyboard makes searching for the letters that much easier. This together with the large buttons allows for easy and fast text entry on handheld devices and enables a user to type for much longer periods.

Typing on the keyboard is simple. Just tap anywhere on the large buttons containing the letters of the word once until the word is formed. If the word displayed is not the word you want, simply tap on the correct word choice from the hint window. The chosen word will be highlighted in blue.

Entering letters or new words that are not in the library is seamless. Simply strike across the letter you want and the letter will be displayed. New words formed in this way are automatically saved in the library so you can just tap the words out the second time round.

Their website has a very good flash demo of this new input method in action.
