    if that works for SMS then that's huge ... at least to me. :)

    the caption says it is web mode ... uncertain what that means other than browsing.


    edit: bad news

    "Does the keyboard rotate when you rotate the iPhone? Only in the Web browser. That’s a shame, because the rotated keyboard, stretching the full length of the screen, is much bigger and easier to use than the narrow version."

    i want this for SMS ASAP. :(

    good start though

    Yes, it does indeed state that under "web mode," but I wonder what about the other modes, such as e-mail and SMS.

    Edit: Ah, after reading through almost the entire list of Q&A's on that page, I found this:

    NOPE. Sorry everyone, David Pogue has published an article as a follow up to his review which is basically a Q&A about the thing, and he specifically says that the landscape mode works only during web browsing mode, not for any of the messaging applications.

    That said, he also prefaces the article by saying that the secret answer to many questions he answers "no" is actually "coming soon via software update" but of course there's no way of knowing if he's talking about this in particular.

    My guess is that Apple will watch and listen. SJ probably really hopes that everyone will "see the light" in the portrait mode keyboard, and learn to live with it (if not actually love it). But if the clamor is there, which I predict, then they'll enable it...
