I just noticed that the spacebar morphs. This is epic. I've never seen this technology implemented to this degree and level of detail on any mobile device.
Multi-ligual and adaptive.

A lot of keyboards already have the space inference. What I think will be the prime feature of the BB10 keyboard are the words you can swipe up above the keys, which means I won't have to stare at the middle of the screen to see if the word I need comes up.Blatant placeholder signature.

I use various Android devices on a daily basis (HTC Amaze, HTC One V, Touchpad, Galaxy Tab 10.1), and what I find is that the BB10 keyboard is very sensitive and won't lag mid way through my typing. The Amaze was a flagship device from late last year with Ice Cream Sandwich and no matter which keyboard I download (swype, HTC keyboard, swiftkey, etc.), there is lag when I'm typing really fast on long sentences. I've not had that issue with the BB10 dev alpha...

I'm not married to either one; I like the bigger display of a full-touch, and I like the accuracy of a physical keyboard. I think I give a slight edge to the physical keyboard format if only because it's easy to do EVERYTHING one-handed and because you never have to turn the device sideways.
All that said, the BB10 virtual keyboard is good enough that many who swear by physical keyboards will find it at least tolerable. It's good enough that it will win Android and iPhone users over to Blackberry just on its own merits.

I think it's going to prove very attractive.

I hope that it will also detect letters where spaces should be. For example, I don't know how many times I have typed something likebthis, with a b in between words on my pb.
