    Man, I but the APK for the stock Samsung keyboard (you mean the one that looks like the iPhone keyboard?) will be available because the Galaxy S and other variants seem to have it.

    I have tried to install the Samsung keypad onto my Droid X, and it didn't work. If it doesn't work an actual Samsung device, I am going to be pretty pissed.

    YouTube - Samsung Captivate Keyboard Options

    It's the keyboard he covers from 0:20 to 0:53. It is basically just a standard keyboard, but it is a very very good responsive one with great auto correct and suggestion capabilities. I used it while I was checking out the Captivate at an AT&T store and fell in love with it.

    I am extremely disappointed that it is not in the Fascinate. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can simply just download the APK file and that will suffice.

    That looks identical to the Droid X multi-touch keyboard whose APK was released for the Incredible, except the Samsung version seems to be a different "skin." The auto correct and key response appear the same, hence why I believe it's the same keyboard and yes, I believe without a doubt that the APK would be released shortly after the phone becomes available.

    There are some very determined and talented people out there that want exactly what you want. They'll make it happen :)

    Yea, we will see. I am going to download the Droid X's multi touch keyboard onto the Fascinate as well.

    Also, what you just said makes me pretty sure that there will be someone that will quickly figure out exactly how to get the Google Search bar onto the phone and how to remove Bing Search.

    I am very interested. I actually have a galaxy S but it's the Korean version, not the i9000 but the SHW-M110S. It's very similar but has at least one hardware difference,a DMB TV receiver. It also doesn't come with the same software. The stock keyboard options include swype and a dual language standard keyboard. Unfortunately the latin (english), although very responsive, has no correction or prediction unless you use swype (glad it makes other's happy, but not for me).

    I would love to get the U.S. variant on here, and even if it doesn't work on other devices, there's a chance it works on this one I guess.

    There is an xda-developers thread with a dump of all the galaxy S apk's but I can't tell which if any of those are the keyboard apk. If someone could even point that out I could give it a shot. Thanks.

    ok I found it, something with T9 in the name that I missed. Sadly, even on a korean Galaxy S it didn't work. :( I didn't use adb, just grabbed it email to the phone and tried to run it.

    Nope. I made a thread over at XDA but no one has responded. I think it will take some time before people start figuring out things with this phone then we will start getting some answers.

    I am going to try sideloading the APK file with Android Central's Sideload Wonder Machine. Unfortunately, I am on a Mac so I am going to have to wait until later today when I can get on my friend's Windows laptop. Hopefully, I won't get any errors. If that works, I will let all of you know.

    If anyone has some free time and can do this before me, let us know.

    How do you select a different keyboard on the Fascinate? There is no "Input Method" option on mine?

    Update: nevermind, forgot about the long press in entry field method.

    It should. It works with pretty much all the other Android 2.1 phones. I don't know why it isn't working with the Fascinate. No one seems to have figured it out yet. Once I can get my hands on a PC (I am on a Mac), I am going to try and sideload the APK file and see if that works.

    I am not sure what is going on then. This is ridiculous.
