Productivity on the go

Having switched from Blackberry to Android about six months ago, my mobile experience has become much richer and more extensive. But that only applies to consuming content; not to creating it. As much as you might argue that the mobile tools exist to produce written content, the limitations of a phone keyboard, and lack of things like drag and drop are too significant hurdles for me.

The wonderful Swiftkey keyboard predicts my next word quite well, which gets me to the point where I can write short emails, texts and tweets. But anything longer, such as a post like this, and my longing for a full 90 words per minute keyboard is too intense to keep writing.

The problem is that this limits my ability to write as much as I want to. I don’t carry my laptop with me everywhere. So I end up reading, listening and watching much more than writing. And I’d like to write more.

Solutions? Maybe a tablet with some sort of full external keyboard? Or a smaller laptop that I carry around more? I’m open to suggestions.
