DALLAS (Jan 13, 2010) - - BEIKS LLC, the world leader in language and reference applications for mobile devices, announces three new language keyboard layouts for its popular input extension utility InterType for BlackBerry smart phones.
InterType is a software application allowing users to enter text in languages not readily available as keyboard layouts for the BlackBerry.
It extends the device's use for essential tasks such as composing emails and short messages as well as performing web searches in those languages.
There are several different keyboard layouts pre-defined for each language so that users can pick the one that best fits their needs based on device and personal preferences.
InterType will work on any BlackBerry smart phone running BlackBerry OS 4.2 and higher. It also supports the soft-touch keyboard found in the BlackBerry Storm and BlackBerry Storm 2 models.
There are some conditions and restrictions to using the application.
Since InterType is not extending the core OS functionality with another keyboard layout, it doesn't operate like part of the OS and it is subject to the limitations that the OS imposes on all other applications.
On the other hand, installing InterType is as easy as any other application and so is removing it.

Keyboard layouts cost $10 to keep as of January 2010. BEIKS is considering increasing that price in coming weeks. About BEIKS LLC
