    on my HTC Magic would say the absolute best keyboard i've come across so far is the "shape writer" keyboard , similar to the swype keyboard.

    I can type incredibly fasy with it, with it's unique way to type. Gliding your finger letter to letter :)

    i use anysoftkeyboard. it lets me use the Dvorak layout and i can toggle between letters, numbers, and symbols by swiping (though you can enable buttons if you want).

    I use Better Keyboard with the Android Theme.... Turn the sound and haptic feedback off and add the HTC Hero library and you are golden... ;)

    I came from the blackberry and really missed the hard keys. But after a couple weeks got used to the HTC keyboard. However I would still make mistakes. I just installed Anysoftkeyboard (its free on the market) and I must say I make way less mistakes with the new keyboard installed. Try it it is much better.

    For phones running 2.0+, smartkeyboard is a must, multitouch enabled, fastest keyboard for softkeyboards.

    I've been using evenbetter keyboard I really like it but my problem is with the fact that it doesn't learn your habits or do a very good job learning new words , just downloaded shapewriter and it's pretty good, but I wish when you put it in landscape you could just go back to the even better landscape keyboard as the swype isn't needed for landscape mode especially when it's half the size
