    I downloaded and installed this on my DX. Is it just me or does it look tiny compared to the regular Android keyboard?

    I'll take a couple of screenshots so you can see what I'm talking about...

    Reading a couple GB reviews on the nexus s pretty sure I read google did in fact reduce the key size.

    Personally, I think the GB keyboard is overrated. Nice in landscape but too small in portrait.

    Here's some screenshots I took of my phone. Way too small in either landscape or portrait mode even with the big DX screen.

    Does the key size increase if you turn off the prediction selector boxes? Not around my phone to check.

    Those keys look crazy small. Im using the GB keyboard and my keys aren't that small.

    That's how it should look.

    Something isn't right on my phone then. I grabbed it from the download link at droid-life and I've rebooted my phone too and still looks little.

    yea, this is how mine looks in portrait and my keys are much bigger in landscape than what you posted above hacku. The "to:" box looks like it is scrunching the keyboard down. The keyboard is overrated really but for me the word prediction seems more accurate.

    Yeah its looks to be an issue with the D2 and the X. If u check out the comments on droid-life there's a temporary fix for it by using a screen density app from the market.
