    This may be weird as everything else I have read is people saying the other.... however, I find that it's alot easier fo rme to type in portrait mode than landscape...

    Landscape there are more errors and it almost seems that the keyboard response is a tad slower/delayed. Portrait mode however is a lot faster and I hardly get spelling errors....

    I noticed that when you configure the typing wizard you do it in portrait mode... is there a way to do it in landscape as well?

    Thanks,
    -Nigel

    I also feel more accurate with portrait mode. I'm with you on the lag with landscape mode as well. I thought I was the only one.

    I never use landscape. Portrait is very fast with minimal corrections if any.

    I was shocked when I saw that my rather large, ham-fisted friend (I hope he's not reading this ;)) typed in portrait mode. He said it was no problem and worked better then landscape. So I gave it a try and after some practice I've not looked back. Now, I almost never use the landscape keyboard.

    I make more mistakes in portrait, but the suggestive text is phenomenal (most times).

    Yea I type in portrait more as well, I like it better for a few reasons:

    1. More accurate quicker as others have said
    2. faster typing when using browser, I HATE typing anything in the browser in landscape.
    3. I like being able to still view the screen that I'm on

    I too have noticed it to be easier most of the time. Also this being the first time I tried the portrait keyboard while posting on the forums, just noticed there is almost no lag in portrait compared to the horrible lag I experience while typing in landscape.

    yes i to have noticed the same...

    but one more thing...
    my left thumb is not as confident / stable at hiting the right area.
    past phones.. all virtual keyboards and all in portrait.
    my left thumb has not been used much.. so now.. it feels clumsy.

    So I prefer portrait but currently trying to train my left thumb
