    any devs out there working on a multi-touch virtual keyboard? as in if you hit two keys at the same time it will input both of them (maybe one before the other)

    I would pay good money for an app like this

    That actually sounds like it could be cool, but if you're going to not lift up your fingers as much, you might as well use Swype.

    i tried swype for a couple of weeks... and although it IS a very good keyboard, it's main purpose is for one handed use. I found myself getting frustrated at times when I wanted to type up a paragraph or so with both fingers

    That's true, I remember when I first got an iPod touch the hardest thing for me was to remember to keep all my fingers off the keyboard before I hit a letter. If there was a way of keeping track of intentional vs unintentional keypresses, you might be able to type really fast on a less sensitive touch keyboard, since you could casually drag your fingers around instead of peck at each letter.

    the droid virtual keyboard is just as responsive as the iPhones now. before the 2.0.1 update it was significantly worse

    Not exactly, but it is still not multi touch. I don't consider it to be as responsive when I can't touch two keys at the same time while typing, which is something that can be done on the iPhone.

    agreed but if u had 2.0 there was a difference between that and 2.0.1(which is much better than 2.0), but as u said it cant be compared to the iphones keyboard with multi-touch lacking.

    Check out this link. It's currently in beta, but the dev is looking for feedback. Personally, I couldn't get it to work well for me, but it may be a phone-by-phone basis.
