The first Chinese keyboard I saw, way back in the 1970s, had about 5000 symbols. It was so huge that you had to stand on you feet so you could stretch out to reach all of them.

Although Chinese has somewhat like 20,000 symbols, being familiar with 5000 is considered sufficient for reading everyday text. It is like words in letter-based languages: You don't have to know every word of a language to read/write it. Actually, you can get quite far with 5000 words!

And, lots of Chinese symbols are composed from other elements. So 2000 keys can probably generate a lot more different symbols by overstriking one symbol on another, just like we have done with accents in Western languages for centuries.

So?

Are you saying that Cyrillic keyboards don't exist, because Cyrillic isn't a language?

Keyboards are for entering characters (or symbols). If the required characters are available, the language of the text is rather inessential, from the keyboard's point of view. Using a plain A-Z keyboard you can enter text in a large number of languages.

Chinese symbols are used by a lot of languages, even outside China.

Still does not change the fact that no language exists called "chinese" China has many languages, the biggest 2 being Mandarin and Cantonese.

I did and I would have been much more entertained if there would have been a hot Chinese chick posing with the keyboard with her huge tits hanging out.
