    I notice no difference, I'm still typing around 45 WPM on the iPhone's keyboard in portrait mode...

    I noticed this just before when I was trying to type out an SMS. I returned to the home screen, went back into the message and it was fine. It was really annoying, so I hope it doesn't happen to often, or even better that they fix it in the next update.

    Got something to do with 3Rd Party Apps I think, software update should sort it.

    I don't have any 3rd party apps and I noticed it immediately I upgraded my V1 to 2.0. It's annoying and I don't text all that often. I hope Apple fixes it soon.

    I've managed to out-run mine a few times as well.

    On the plus side, I was amazed at how, within a couple of hours, I was going at the thing with both thumbs and absolutely tanking out the text :)

    Faster than a keypad, any day. Faster than any slide out I've used either, come to think of it. It's just intuitive.
