    Hi all!

    I have a question for people (ie paying developers) that have tested or are using the 3.0 firmware.

    One of my biggest gripes of all with the iPhone keyboard occurs in switching from Portrait to Landscape. If I'm in, say, Safari, typing something in the address bar, I can't rotate to Landscape without closing and reopening the keyboard (basically, deselecting and reselecting the text field.)

    Has this been "fixed" in Safari? How about the other apps, such as Messages, or Mail?

    Messages, Mail, and Notes will rotate with the keyboard up, Safari will not.

    It's still the same in Safari, have to close the keyboard to rotate to landscape to open it again. Messages, Mail, Calendar and Notes however you can rotate to landscape with the keyboard open.

    Don't know why Apple didn't change Safari to match.

    Is the landscape keyboard still laggy? My safari landscape keyboard is laggier than portrait mode.

    I have not experienced any lag in portrait or landscape on the keyboard, it has definitely been improved.
