Faster, more intuitive text input

The Android soft keyboard is redesigned and optimized for faster text input and editing. The keys themselves are reshaped and repositioned for improved targeting, making them easier to see and press accurately, even at high speeds. The keyboard also displays the current character and dictionary suggestions in a larger, more vivid style that is easier to read.

The keyboard adds the capability to correct entered words from suggestions in the dictionary. As the user selects a word already entered, the keyboard displays suggestions that the user can choose from, to replace the selection. The user can also switch to voice input mode to replace the selection. Smart suggestions let the user accept a suggestion and then return to correct it later, if needed, from the original set of suggestions.

New multitouch key-chording lets the user quickly enter numbers and symbols by pressing Shift+<letter> and ?123+<symbol>, without needing to manually switch input modes. From certain keys, users can also access a popup menu of accented characters, numbers, and symbols by holding the key and sliding to select a character.

Unlocked 3gs running on tmobile for 50 bucks a month (also no contract) with unlimited everything and is even unlocked for tethering via usb and blutooth.

Unbeatable in terms of function ability and cost combined.

Funny thing is that a lot of the time it will be running off ATnTs towers, but at a third of what the cost should be for the same service!

I love have a few techy friends.

One of them just found ou how to do the same thing with an Iphone4 (got around the mini sim problem that has kept it from being able to be done in the past), so Ill be going that route in the not too distant future.
