Palm Pre onscreen keyboard in the works

While an earlier browser-based WebShell keyboard caused a stir among those looking for a soft keyboard on the Pre, a true onscreen keyboard is now in the works. Coders recently found a pop-up keyboard hidden within webOS. Actually, the keyboard was crafted from a modified SYM pop-up extra characters list, and works in both portrait and landscape orientation. "The Palm Pre already COMES with an on-screen keyboard...(it) provides a path to produce a fully functional on-screen keyboard", the developers note.

While the tweak is still in Pre-Alpha stage right now (with a few issues to iron out), a full virtual keyboard on the Pre looks well on its way to fruition. Head straight over to the patch and patch instructions to get started, or hit up the link below for more details.
