    Now that you have the Moto Droid, Your opinion on the Keyboard?

    Everyone has seen the reviews on the Keyboard all over the net, but I really like to form my own opinion on things. So what is yours?

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    Gets better with use

    I was able to play with the Droid yesterday before the release and decided I did not like the keyboard enough to switch from my Storm2. I then decided that there will never be a perfect phone so I compromised on the keyboard and got the Droid. I surprised with the keyboard as it is a lot easier to use today than yesterday.

    I'm glad I changed.

    It is fine. Not quite as nice as my Touch Pro, but good tactile feedback and the keys aren't too small, at least for my fingers/thumbs.

    Is there anyway to slow down the touchscreen keyboard? Seems awfully sensitive and it's hard to text on it.

    Thanks!

    I say the keyboard isn't TOO bad, but the top row is alittle too close to the screen, if given alittle more room up top, i'd give it a better rating, right now i'm giving it a 6/10
    Resistance is futile.

    I was worried about the keyboard after reading all major reviews, but I got my Droid this morning and the keyboard is a lot better than I was expecting. I am coming from a Touch pro on VZW, and I would say that the SLIGHTLY shallower keys are more than made up for by the way more logical layout of the keys. I can't tell you how many times I pressed Up Arrow on my TouchPro when I wanted to type M. I can definitely be happy with the Droid keyboard.

    I come from a phone with a flat keypad so its not that difficult to use.

    I will have to get used to it, but its like that with any new phone or keyboard.

    I have no issues with it.

    It helps that I'm a "blank slate" coming from a dumbphone, plus I'm a female with small to average sized hands.

    I'd read all the b'ing and moaning about the keyboard on hofo and was pleasantly surprised once I got my hands on it. I have trouble with the portrait on-screen keyboard, but do very very well with the physical keyboard.
