HP just let loose with some more info on that gesture keyboard the company showed off in India a couple of weeks ago.  According to HP, the keypad, which was developed by the company's Bangalore-based research team, can reproduce the script used in Hindi and other Indic languages, a process that would require up to 1,000 keys using a traditional keyboard (though most keyboards designed for such languages rely on keystroke combinations, rather than actual 1,000-key layouts). HP has begun selling the keypad in India for about $45, including software. The device is being manufactured in India by a company HP declined to name. HP sees the potential market for the keyboard as comprising up to 1.5 billion non-English speakers in India, Nepal and other South Asian countries. At $45 a pop, that could make the keyboard a pretty lucrative product for HP.
