On-screen keyboard for the G1
Lately, news about Android are actually flooding us. Free navigation applications, optimized Google search, new developers with great promises, a long list of updates, called “cupcakes” and what not. The last one includes an on-screen keyboard, which is long expected by G1 users. With it, it’ll be no longer necessary to open the device every time when you need to type in a short message.

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.
