Is qwerty Hindi ? (grin)

India is getting a Qwerty phone in Hindi.

http://goo.gl/d6fHR

I would guess that 'qwerty' has an equivalent in Hindi.
Transliteration or otherwise.


German is QWERTZ ...and qwerty gets German smirks most of the time...

the Net in India = mobile
so this is very nice innovation to see.

Re: Is qwerty Hindi ? (grin)

There's nothing stopping anyone from using QWERTY input for Hindi, or any other language.

Why is QWERTY funny for Germans? Does it sound like something else?

QWERTY is not a Latin script keyboard, it is an English Language keyboard. The Czechs also interchange the Y and Z whilst the French keyboard is AZERTY.

Of course transliterations can always be input using a keyboard from the transliterated language. Nothing to stop you doing this in Cyrillic, Arabic or Hirigana. Indeed Urdu is pretty much Hindi in Arabic script.

Hopefully not too many years away from India having hundreds of millions of hand held phones online with cheap cost to access and surf the internet.
