    You must not do much texting / note writing / emailing because because I think everyone can agree it is much harder to write in landscape mode.

    Or is that just me?

    Different strokes for different folk I guess. I acutally type faster in landscape mode.

    It's just you. The keys are more spread apart in landscape mode, so you make less mistakes.

    AND, it isn't possible. Would encourage too much work. Hackers have steered away from this idea...Sorry.

    Just you, or at the very least, not everyone.

    Maybe it's harder to type with one hand in landscape mode, true, but I prefer two handed landscape.

    I would love to have landscape mode in ALL applications that use the keyboard.

    I agree. It is much easier for me to type with the landscape keyboard.

    I can type fast in either one. I think people need to stop thinking about making mistakes because the auto correction works great for me! I can text extremely fast with no problem and it's easy to hold the phone with one hand and type with your thumb. For example when you're driving or need your other hand. (I don't suggest texting while driving for obvious reasons though.) Any other time I use my index finger to type.

    Would be a great feature but doubt they will implement it.. Don't see why they don't though. I'm not a programmer but you would thing it would be pretty easy for Apple to get this working since they already do it in Safari.
