I'm right there with ya, bill - it's very pretty, but the predictive
text is *so* annoying! seems pretty unneccessary for a qwerty keyboard
to me - I thought it was interesting to learn that when i typed in
'internode', I actually meant 'interview'?!? :O
Also I find the way it automatically adds spaces to be annoying, not
very good in a terminal.
It's a *big* improvement in terms of finger-pressability over the
matchbox keyboard on 2007.2, and it's *much* prettier, but the
predictive text makes it more difficult to use, especially in a terminal.
I'd also really like to see an enter key on the qwerty page, and maybe
(I know I'm pushing it here) a couple of the most commonly used symbols
such as hyphen and period on the qwerty page.
