If I stick to using my 9930 or the N series bb10 phone I can beat it on that physical keyboard. I live being able to use it via bluetooth currently. Bn improved keyboard would be welcomed as well

I want the HTC ONE (or Android 4.2) Keyboard. A black-colored keyboard types way better than the original grey one.
Keyboard skins will do the trick tooDeveloper of; Crackberry Forums Reader app -> Crackberry Forum App (NON-ANDROID)

I'm not sure why someone would want a split keyboard. That would jsut yeild smaller targets to hit. iPad HAD to do it because the device was too big for people to reach the middle letters when in landscape. With the PlayBook in landscape, we don't have this problem.

agreed, I use to hate typing on my PlayBook but it has become a breeze now in landscape. I hold it with both hands of course and let my thumns do all the work.I waited...It launched...Im still waiting...

Yes, it makes for smaller targets. When I had a 10.1" gTablet, Thumb Keyboard was awesome since the split keyboard moved them closer to the edges. Even on my Nexus 7, Thumb Keyboard comes in handy. I can type a lot faster since my fingers don't have to travel as far (plus it puts the ten-key number pad in the middle). After using those two devices, it is sometimes difficult to type on the PlayBook when reaching towards the middle keys. I think having the option for a split keyboard would be a good thing. What will be really interesting is to see how they implement the keyboard once BB10 arrives on the PlayBook. Text prediction works pretty good on the PlayBook right now (and that definitely helps with typing speed). I wonder how swiping words up from the keyboard will work on a 7" tablet.RuneCryption - Unique memory game for PlayBook & BB10.

Yes. typing in landscape is leaps and bounds better! hard as it may be to believe, I type faster on my landscaped PB than on the physical board found on my 8330!***One cannot get anywhere in life unless they are willing to steal the tiger's wallet.***
