    When typing really fast in Landscape mode on my HTC Incredible I am noticing that the default HTC Incredible keyboard misses about 30% of my keystrokes. This is annoying, especially since I type faster in landscape than in portrait, yet the faster I type, the more keystrokes get missed.

    Missed keystrokes seems to rarely occur, if ever, in portrait mode even if I type relatively fast.

    Has anyone else noticed this? Is it due to graphic-lag, lack of multi-touch typing or some setting?

    I've tried Shapewriter, SwipeIT, Swype, Better Keyboard, and Smart Keyboard and have found either their layout sucks and/or they miss significantly more keystrokes than TouchInput does in Landscape.

    I have not; I mis-type in portrait mode & have difficulty getting phone to rotate to landscape-any tips for doing that?

    settings -> display -> orientation?

    some third-party apps override this too, so worth checking application specific settings.

    Does this happen to you with SMS or when youre web browsing? I noticed that it only lags for me when I'm on a forum

    I type about 50wpm on the landscape keyboard, no lag.
