    That's pretty neat.

    From what I understand (and I could be wrong) the HTC has the option to do compact qwerty.

    What the heck I installed the two apk files and voila HTC keyboard on the Droid. Worked well in portrait but in landscape it didn't expand to cover the width of the screen. Definitely a more accurate typing experience but that bug kind of annoyed me. I'm sure there will be updates to this that fix this.

    That is soo cool. Does the new keyboard have compact qwerty as an option?

    Have you noticed it being more accurate with the HTC files?

    Also, where did you get the files/figure this out?

    Crap, I uninstalled before I tested that out.

    It was definitely more accurate no doubt about it. The problem is the files have not been update for 2.0. I think the files are for 1.5 or 1.6

    The link to get started is below. However, the two files you need are on another site which I forgot. But you can google them and find them easily.

    That being said there is a paid app called better keyboard for the Droid that works really well
