    anyone know if there might be a way to make the keyboard multi-touch? like if I hit two keys at the same time it'll key in both keys

    or maybe how to disable to pop-up that comes out on the keys?

    Maybe not multi-touch, but HTC keyboard from Hero works great for me. Only issue right now is that the resolution is not optimized for QVGA

    Here's info on the swype keyboard for Android.

    Swype keyboard leaked for Motorola Droid – Typing without the tapping

    It does appear to be a leaked pre-release, but I just tried it and it's freakin' awesome. When this is released as final, it will probably be a pay app but I will definitely be buying it and using it. It works exactly as advertised, and as shown on the Samsung Omnia commercial on TV.

    Sweet! Finally I can almost type as fast as I could on my iPhone.
