Urdu keyboard layout question
Thread poster: RichardPerry

I've discovered that there are (at least) two Urdu keyboard layouts that are (or have been?) in common use

1. The phonetic Urdu layout: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urdu_keyboard
2. The Microsoft Urdu layout: http://frontype.com/keyboard/Urdu-keyboard.jpg

Can anyone tell me which of these two keyboards would be most familiar to mobile phone users in Pakistan? That is, if I were designing a keyboard for a touchscreen phone, which of these keyboard layouts would I use?

Thanks very much,

Hi
Phonetic Keyboard is mostly used by users. But professionals (e.g Typists) prefer Microsoft's keyboard which is also approved from government of Pakistan's Language Authority.
