On Android there are alternative keyboards available. For Windows 8 I couldn't find any such.

Specifically I'd like to have a keyboard that limits itself to the lower right edge of the screen in order to allow single-thumb-typing, as I do on my phone. This would also largely help on the desktop, where the programs don't work too well with half the screen hidden by a virtual keyboard.

To be fair, even for Android I cannot find THAT kind of keyboard1, so if anyone has an idea for Android - that would also be welcome.

Other alternative keyboards might also help, even if they add just such little things like numbers via press-and-hold of a letter (as used by many keyboards, including the iOS keyboard).

1 I've read swipe supports it for screens larger than 7", but first of all if I'd buy an Android tablet it would would be 7" and second I don't like auto-completion-suggestions, so swype isn't a viable option for me.

You can find all of your choices in the Windows Store. – Ramhound Mar 17 '13 at 12:24
That doesn't really help though. Under the search term "keyboard" the closest match I find is piano keys. And even if I were to find any alternate keyboards, there would likely be countless offers nowhere the listed needs. I was really looking for a bit more specific pointers ;) – kdb Mar 17 '13 at 20:46
I guess you have your answer. At this time there are no keyboard replacement Window Store applications. I don't give product suggestions since that wouldn't be an on topic. – Ramhound Mar 17 '13 at 23:35
