Typing on touchscreens is terrible - mainly because it takes up so much of the screen.

No wonder people want five-inch screens on their phones - or up to eight inches if you're Samsung.

But now a new concept by Minuum may have solved all of that.

It looks confusing at first, but it's easy - the keyboard is squished into a single line of buttons which suggest relevant letters based on the word.

It will be released on the Android app stores - Google Play and others - soon.

Its makers say:

"Type anywhere with Minuum, the little keyboard for big fingers. Minuum is a touchscreen keyboard app, soon to be available for Android, that saves you screen space while maintaining speed and accuracy. The simplicity of the Minuum keyboard also enables an unlimited number of new ways that you can type on wearable devices, game controllers, and more."

So what do you think? Has this solved mobile typing?

  • Answer: Nespresso Magimix U Pure

    That's right - it's a coffee maker. Specifically, it's the <a href="http://www.nespresso.com/uk/en/product/u-magimix-orange;jsessionid=B4EA5C056C466378971E7A487900A7F6.node2">Nespresso Magimix U in orange</a>. This device retails for about £120, and uses a thermoblock heating system and 19 bars of pressure to turn Nespresso's little coffee capsules into very decent espresso indeed. We found it to be a nice looking, quick and well-made coffee maker, but one which is also a bit pricey and lacks some key options - no steamed milk, extra hot water or other extras. It folds up neatly, uses magnetic clips for its extraneous parts and handily turns itself off when not in use. It's a solid and tasty choice if you need to up your caffeine intake at work.
