Google Rolls Out Virtual Keyboards On Non-English Search Portals

Interesting move by Google, although I wonder how many Russian, or Greek users actually have a keyboard that does not support their local language. Sure enough, Google's team probably has data that backs this feature (I hope).

The basic idea behind the virtual keyboard is that users can enter the precise search terms they want, regardless of the language keys on their real keyboards. As Google points out on its support pages, this can prove particularly helpful to people who use one of the many non-Latin script-based languages that require special characters such as Arabic, Greek, and Thai.
