Gboard provides dedicated hardware Gmail shortcuts

updated 03:40 pm EST, Fri December 4, 2009

19 different shortcuts in total

Gboard.com has released the Gboard, a shortcut keyboard designed specifically for Gmail users. The device provides 19 different Gmail shortcuts, for tasks such as marking spam or trash, forwarding or replying to e-mails, and adding or removing stars. The unit requires no initial software in order to work, and is color-coded to separate different task categories.

Some other shortcuts allow moving backwards and forwards through threads or messages, opening and closing content, and accessing search and escape functions. The device uses a USB connection, and should support both Snow Leopard and the latest web browsers. It is being sold online at a cost of $20.

    Umm...

    Does anyone really need that enough to pay for an extra piece of hardware to take up space on their desk? Gmail already has great keyboard shortcuts, so this seems really, really useless.
