    HI ALL
    I've noticed that there is a lot of mis typing that
    Happens on this keyboard. Without the good correction
    Software I would be typing rubbish

    Was thinking that more space between smaller keys
    Might improve accuracy
    Cheers
    Dan

    I just type as normal (and I have pretty fat fingers), the software does the rest. I was worried before I got the phone that the screen-based keyboard would be difficult but it does a brilliant job. I reckon I'm faster on the Desire than I was on my Nokia's T9 keyboard (and I was rapid on that!).

    My only tip is to not look at what you're typing until the suggestions come-up and then hit the space (or the one you want if different).

    SmartKeyboard (Pro) has different keyboard looks to choose.

    If you don't mind, the iPhone keyboard look has more space between the keys ;)

    EDIT: Even without this, SmartKeyboard is a very good keyboard :)

    Am using swype. I didn't like it at first and it isn't perfect, but ultimately it's quicker than anything else. Just need to fiddle the settings.
