type too fast? spacebar doesn't register
does anyone have a problem with the spacebar not registering when typing quickly on their phone? it seems to be getting worse as i get faster. which of course is annoying because words run together and then get saved in the dictionary or auto-corrected. it's driving me nuts.

usually when i go to hit the space bar i hit the left arrow key and places my text in stupid spots in the prev word.
gotta love touch screen keyboards.
Im deff tempted to start looking for an alt keyboard without those arrow keys. they ALWAYS mess me up

Coming from a Storm to Droid X, I'm a noob with this touch screen. But I too have noticed when I get rolling typing a message it has a problem with the space. If you turn to landscape mode I've noticed that there's not much of a problem. Still does it a little but not as bad as vertical.

this thread made me realize I wanted to look for new keyboards. lol
I just dl'd the Droid X keyboard to try out. I dont hit the arrows as they are not there, but still get the space thing once in a while. I just did it though. Ill give it a few days maybe to play with it before trying something else.

I don't know if the EVO is true multitouch or not but the typing experience on the EVO is really good I like it and I rarely have errors. It does take a while to get used to a virtual keyboard, but once you have gotten comfortable, it is really a pleasure to use.

I love the speech to text sometimes. Sometimes i will just send the random crap it comes up with to mess with people. I always get WTF? texts back. hahahahah.
I digress though. . . . .

I only hit the arrow keys in portrait mode, which is a little crampped for me anyways. When I type in landscape mode there is nothing below the space bar, so I don't have an issue there. Coming from a PRE, I don't miss that keyboard at all. Having used other physical landscape keyboards, I think I would prefer that to an onscreen keyboard, but I have no issue with speed at all.
EVO - 4G
