You mixed in a reply to me in here so I'll deal with just this one.
True, although I suspect there's more than one purpose, such as teaching
the alphabetic ordering, or at least not adding to a confusion of it. I
mean, it's not as if 'speed typing', I.E. finding the keys quickly, would
be much of a criteria ;)
Someone looking at one handed keyboards isn't faced with an 'ABC' keyboard
as one of the choices, though. It's typically "should I get a one handed or
stay with QWERTY?" But hunt and peck on a one handed, if it has enough
labels, is an order of magnitude more difficult because they depend heavily
on key combinations.
You need 'a good reason' to learn it.
