    Definately HTC_IME keyboard. Tried a good number of the ones listed above and imho HTC_IME knocks spots off the others.

    You get it from XDA developers, just use their search function and look for Jonasl HTC_IME. There is also a chap called Gimpsta over there who has created a site to mod the keyboard and you can create your own skins for it, I have three different ones but currently on a pink and white one as it blends in with my wallpaper. Again just search Gimpsta and HTC_IME and you should find it. You want High Res but not Froyo (obviously!) just download it, unzip and copy accross to your phone. You will need a file manager Astro or Linda to find it on your SD card and then install. Simples!

    I have said Swype, but with the last update, I can't get used to it anymore, they have tweaked it slightly, probably for the better, but somehow I prefered the older version... might try the HTC one.

    I think you missed one that surly should be listed as it is very unique and just love it. It is called "Thick Buttons" keyboard. If you could add that I would surly vote for it. I would have voted for SWYPE, even over the one I just mentioned, but since I do not and cannot get it on my X10 (Thank You AT&T), I cannot vote for it.

    XXXX So I vote for the "ThickButtons" KeyBoard....


    Side Note: I see a lot of people voting for the HTC, but I do not see any listed as HTC. Are there HTC keyboards up there, but under a different name???

    i use slideIT (cos not able to get swype), but used to use the HTC one. the slideIT is awesome to type quickly, but when typing non-english words, it can be a pain. I wish there was a mix between the two.

    +1 except it lacks a few scandinavian caracters on the keyboard itself. They appear in the wordlist though. :)

    I used to see loads of comments about how awful the native X10 keyboards are but I stuck with them because I knew no better. However I eventually cracked and went for the HTC but my continued research brought up Swype only a week later so I've used that ever since. I think it would be difficult for me now to go back to tappy typing, though the HTC was good and a definite improvement on the pre-installed options.

    I have played with Swype, but I found Shapewriter easier/quicker to use.

    Funny how most Xperia users use the HTC keyboard yet the OP did not add this to his poll
