    I'm running the ESE53 build of 2.1 (the build that was going to be released... but then wasn't) and the soft keyboard seems vastly superior to the earlier software keyboard, they both look the same but the ese keyboard is far more responsive and seems to interpret what I want to say much better.

    Anyone else noticed this?

    ...One more thing to look forward to in 2.1:)

    I may give it a try, but I absolutely love "Smart Keyboard" using either the Iphone or White theme. The issue I have with the stock keyboard (including 2.1) is no multi touch. Hold down two keys at the same time and let go....only one letter records. Smart Keyboard has true multitouch. press down on two keys and let go, both record.

    How do you get the HTC keyboard on the Droid? I have been looking everywhere trying to figure out how to do this.
