    ok so the fact is texting and typing on the iphone keyboards, landscape or portrait, is wayyy better than typing on the droid. the iphone keyboard is a lot more responsive and faster. when i start to type fast on my droid a lot of the letters i hit dont show up.

    soo what im getting at, is there an app to get the iphone keyboard on the droid? or is there a reason for the slow response time of our keyboards?

    there are a lot of keyboard applications out there, but I haven't had a problem with mine and haven't really had a need to try anything else.

    you need to consider how long he's been using the iphone vs how long he's been using the droid.

    If you get used to the keyboard on another phone, and not the other, this isn't accurate because he's not as used to using the other keyboard.

    That is very true....my prior phone was a LG Dare with a tiny screen in comparison to the Droid and I can type faster with the Dare than the Droid. This is only because I was used to and accustomed to the keyboard. I have gotten better with the Droid keyboard and soon I will be just a proficient with it as I was with the Dare.

    well i will say this if your droid is connected via ub to your computer and sometimes even when it it just charging in the wall and you try and type ANYTHING it repeats the letter a bunch of times and vibrates like crazy . weird i have to unplug if i want to type it is as if the screen becomes EXTREMELY sensitive while charging

    After 3-4 days of using the keyboard on the Motorola Droid, I RARELY ever mess up typing. Don't count out the keyboard after your first time using it. Also if you coming from an iPhone which you have been using for a while, of course you will be better on it.

    Just give it some time :)

    OK to clarify guys I used the iPhone for about 2 weeks. And I'm not talking about typing when its plugged in. Its not so much that I make a lot of mistakes, but if I start typing fast the phone wont keep up. Like it only types certain letters.

    did you look in the upper left hand corner of that iphone in the video.

    "No Service" Really doesn't matter how fact you can type with that is displayed all the time on the phone.

    Haha actually I didn't watch the video as I'm on my droid right now lol. I'm not saying I don't like my droid, just that the virtual keyboard is not as good as the iphones. But hopefully we will have an app or update to fix that soon.

    @jf2006,

    I use the Better keyboard app with an iPhone skin and it is Great! If you are looking for a typing experience similar to that of an iPhone, this is probably the best option.

    While I found the Droid's virtual keyboard to be adequate, I do seem to type faster with this skin...Plus, better keyboard is, in my opinion, a better keyboard app :)

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for the advice. I was actually looking at that app and the even better keyboard app. From what I read the even better has T9 capabilities? Does better keyboard also have T9? If so what are the differences?

    What you are likely encountering is the lack of multitouch support in the keyboard. If they fix that, you'll notice a lot faster typing.

    yep, multitouch is a must when someone can type that fast.

    The lack of multi-touch really slows down the typing experience. Its not so much that I'm not used to typing on the Droid (I really am pretty good at it) its that the phone can't keep up with my fingers which frustrates me. I have to slow down for the phone which is really unfortunate cause it would make the phone perfect if it had this.

    I hope so too, don't see why they wouldn't add it to the browser and keyboard (or the entire phone's core apps) in a coming update. If not, hopefully a keyboard app will use it.
