    I was inspired by the extreme typing test thread to see how fast I can type. Every review I've read says ' it's not actually that good for typing quickly' or something like, only for them to then say 'but it's more accurate'.

    I understand why people would say that. The keyboard is wide so you have to move your fingers more. Is it slow though? No. I achieve 58 words per minute and see no reason why 60 isn't possible. Granted I'm a writer and very fast touch typist (116 wpm), but I think most people are these days.

    58 wpm is without predictive text swipes, too. Once you get used to this keyboard, it's a beast for typing. I find myself sliding my thumbs across the keyboard instead of lifting them off and tapping the next button.

    How are others coping with typing on this keyboard?

    It takes some time to get used to but once you do it is really fast!

    I think it is because I usually don't type with my left thumb, being a right hander so it was quite hard at first but now I'm glad I get to 'exercise' my left hand too lol.

    You started another thread to post what could have and should have easily been placed in the extreme typist thread? What is so different about your post compared to the extreme typist thread? You even posted in that thread...

    I'm sorry, I didn't realise CB was full of forum Nazis. The other thread is a competition. I was looking for thoughts about speed v accuracy on the passport from other users.

    Why have you gotten so upset over something so trivial?
