    Has anyone seen a keyboard replacement that splits in a way similar to the iOS 5 keyboard for iPad (i.e., two separate keypads, with the screen visible in between the two keypads)? I know a lot of keyboard replacements have been playing with the split layout since before iOS 5, but none of them that I've seen have actually broken the keyboard into two discrete "pads" so to speak -- they always have one contiguous "pad" that spans the screen, with the keys clustered toward the ends. If someone knows of one and can point me in its direction, I'd be very grateful.

    For those who haven't seen, I'm referencing something like this:

    Well isn't iphone too small for this, if this keyboard can also be used on some bigger screen like that of ipad then it can be of some benefit. And i haven't found anything like that in android. Good work though.

    Yeah, I think it's only available on iPads running iOS 5. Would love to see something like this for Android tablets.

    Thumb Keyboard is a completely customizable splitter. Love it on my TBolt, also optimized for Tablets.

    Hmm, I think I have that one already. Is there a setting in there somewhere that will actually split the keyboard into two smaller keypads where the screen space in between is visible, or even semi-visible? I've played around with it a fair amount and haven't found a satisfactory splitting for my tastes.

    Not sure since I don't own a tablet. I was able to customize spacing and letter size on my phone but I have no need to completely split the keyboard on a 4.3" screen. I was under the impression it was possible on a tablet. Check out the Dev's home page here for more info.

    Hmmm, nope, I don't think it's possible to actually split the board. Didn't see it on the site and wasn't able to pull it off on my Flyer. I guess I'll keep waiting and searching.

    There is one keyboard that matches your description. It's called AI type Float n Split or something like that. It doesn't have a free version though (I think) so I haven't tried it.

    The split keyboard is most suitable for tablets which have larger screen than normal phone.
