Q. The first six letters in the modern day keyboard layout.
Clue: Be it typing or gaming or just navigating, consumers like to have different forms of inputs -- touch, keypads and some prefer best of both worlds. An insight from the Axel Meyer, Global Design Head for Nokia is that QWERTY is important for gaming as people are used to using both their hands.
The QWERTY helps transform the product from a monoblock to a multimedia computer. The thought behind was to make a world class QWERTY with equal spacing between keys, spacebar to the side, consumers can use their 10 fingers to write, and also enables ease of use and speed of writing.
