    Does anyone know if 2.0 will have a split keyboard? That's my only complaint about typing on the PB. When in landscape it's hard to type.

    i do have small hands, so I can give proper typing a go on PB, it is very nearly large enough as a proper keyboard for moi!

    Except that Apple didn't invent the split keyboard.......but your right though, just becuase they didn't invent it, doesn't mean they wont sue others for using it.

    I don't know but you must have some extremely long thumbs. It's hard to make it all the way to the center in landscape.

    Android has offered split keyboards long before Apple. So no Apple does not hold a patent

    I need to look up a youtube vid of this magical "swipe" keyboard. I know that android folks are absolutely GAgA over swipe; and I've heard of iPhone folks who are otherwise over the moon with iOS 5.1 jailbreaking just so they can get a swipe keyboard.

    I don't get it honestly. For me,...a keyboard is a keyboard.

    Split keyboard would be really a good feature especially for the mail app witch is only in landcape mode ! Add more languages for the keyboard would be great. I have to write in different languages and it's not very friendly to do that with these new "intelligent" keyboard.

    I was just wondering if there has been any type of update on this?

    I love my playbook and I think that the keyboard and size is one of is best selling points. To be able to hold it in your hands and not have to pay it down to type in landscape mode is fantastic.

    Now this applies to people that have big fingers / hands. My hands are just that little bit to small and the split keyboard would help so much.
