Lesson 4. Managing User Input > Using the Soft Keyboard

Using the Soft Keyboard

Unlike a desktop PC, a Pocket PC device doesn't come with a keyboard for inputting data. When you want to “type” data into an application, you have to use an onscreen keyboard utility, called the Soft Keyboard. You tap the keys of this keyboard with your stylus, just as you'd type on the keys of a physical keyboard.

TIP

You can add an external physical keyboard to most Pocket PC devices, and use this keyboard to type data into your Pocket PC applications. To learn more about external keyboards, turn to Appendix A, “Pocket PC Accessories.”
