You can see what the keypad is going to eventually look like from the video below. As a whole, it reminds us of the one from HTC’s recent models. Similarly, it’ll most probably lack a landscape layout.

Can't wait for that update: onscreen keyboard, browser improvements and video capture.

Does anyone else think this is utterly redundant? What's the point of the slide-out keyboard then? I understand software improvements, but I call this FAIL.

Though I don't have a G1, I think this a great improvement due to the fact that you don't HAVE to open the keyboard EVERY time you need to input something into the phone. What if you got a text and you wanted to type a quick 1 or 2 word text back. You wouldn't have to open the keyboard again and again. This seems minimal, but ease, simplicity and functionality are being completely perfected by Android. Hats off to them.
