    I'm a huge fan of my Samsung Player 5 and most things Android after switching from an iPod touch. Except for the keyboards. On my iPod touch, even though it's small, I have no trouble typing accurately to send emails, for example. It just works. But I've tried many, many Android keyboards and they drive me crazy. The keys are larger, but I make more mistakes. I have to hit it dead center or it types the neighbor letter. The damn thing make me touch on a suggested word after I've typed it, or else it "auto-corrects" it into something totally different - or in another language! Even trying to backspace to correct errors sometimes causes the word to be duplicated, over and over. I just don't get it. I've tried Thumb, Go, Swype, and I don't know how many others, but it's just a struggle.
    Is it me - is there something I'm not getting?
    I'd appreciate any responses about this.
    thanks
