Thumb Keyboard introduces a comfortable keyboard for thumb-typing on the Phone ánd Tablet. By using a *split* layout for both portrait and landscape mode this keyboard facilitates easy and natural thumb-typing on small and large screens.
Motorola XOOM — and the onslaught of Honeycomb-running tablets that we’re about to be slugged with — the developer of Thumb Keyboard has prepared us with a sharp-looking Honeycomb theme. While not animated and glowing like the holographic theme for the upcoming copycat SwiftKey for Tablets, the look of the theme should blend seamlessly with the rest of Android 3.0′s interface. Numerous layouts are included, ranging from small phones to 10" tablets — and pretty much everything in between.
Other additions, like auto-correction, text prediction, and a myriad of user-changeable settings are on par with most other high-end keyboards available for Android. Appropriate themes matching Gingerbread, Galaxy Tab, and several others give you options if you don’t yet have Honeycomb under the hood.

In the world of technology, new devices often lead to new problems, which can lead to creative new solutions.

You can grab it for $1.64 in the Android Market
