    Did everyone see the landscape keyboard in the demo Steve showed for the iPod Touch?

    Oops!

    I see. If the keyboard is displayed it will not switch to landscape. That's odd. Rotate first then tap in data field and the landscape keyboard shows. Guess I'll go on hoping for all apps to work in landscape, with keyboard. Sure would cut down on my typing errors.

    Thanks Gloss.

    No worries. I phrased it as a question because I don't own an iPhone, but have used my friend's a bit, so I was working from memory. I do think it would be fantastic if the keyboard + whatever app you're working in would swap orientations, though. I'm decent on the portrait-screened keyboard, but a landscape-oriented version would indeed be much better for intense typing.
