    When i type a word and mispell a letter...it is very hard to get back to the wrong letter without using the delete key... i miss my trackball.
    am i missing something? If not can u recommend a market keyboard that is more user friendly....

    Well when you tap the word, does it offer suggestions for what it 'thinks' you are trying to write?

    Hey, I am only 36, but I fat finger stuff all the time so I understand

    The latest version of softkeys includes a "soft" set of direction buttons. :) Works nicely for this. I SORELY miss my trackball as well.
