    Hey all, when I try to type with my new Iconia, there is a seriously bad lag when typing. The keyboard letters light up as soon as I touch them, but the letters are very slow to show up on screen. Is this the way it is with everyone's Iconia? Or just mine, I love it so far, but this could be a deal breaker for me. Any help would be great.

    I get bad lag on some websites, particularly ones with loads of ads.

    I seem to notice it on ALL of the forums that I frequent. Its really bad when I can type four or more words before they even start to appear on the screen. Its really annoying.

    As long as it doesn't happen whilst you're not online, then there isn't a problem wih the tab. It will most likely be the wifi speed I would think.
    It is mega annoying, but doubt there is a fix for it.

    Thanks Captain. I will try it at a better wifi connection. Hopefully that is the issue

    Found it over at XDA. Adds ALOT of functionality such as numbers on top row, curser keys (arrows) FN, ALT, CTRL.... and no , I haven't seen any lag on mine.

    Downside is the keys get "slightly" smaller. Try it, it's free.
