    Smart Keyboard Pro with Galaxy Skin.

    Best keyboard. I like it much better than the Gingerbread keyboard

    Try 8pen
    It's tricky but if you force yourself to use it you will get quicker, and you get to feel like an alien.

    The backspace button is in the wrong spot though imo.

    Another thumbs up for smart keyboard pro.

    Really didn't do well with the stock keyboard.

    1 problem is that it doesn't activate with the Samsung email client but I think that's a Samsung issue.

    There is a new free beta version of SwiftKey, I highly recommend it.

    Flex T9 is also worth a look, its one of the ones I regularly flip-flop between, haven't yet settled on a favorite.
