Improvements in HTC’s soft keyboard demoed

Pocketnow has put together a video demonstrating the evolution of HTC’s finger-friendly keyboard as found in the leaked HTC Firestone ROM.  The video shows a better handling of the directional keys, and also a different location for the XT9 word predictions, which seems to me to be less optimized, as one would have to reach across the whole screen to select a word.

Despite that criticism, one really need to give credit to HTC for producing one of the best soft keyboards on any more device at present, which has really made the keyboard-less devices a real alternative for a business user these days.
