Improve your HD2’s Keyboard
Having a 4.3″ touchscreen on your phone can come at a cost, and usually, that cost is the lack of a hardware keyboard. While this isn’t a problem for all of us, serial texters and word-processor addicts definitely suffer from being forced to use an on-screen keyboard like that found on the HTC HD2.
Although the HD2 features capacitive technology like the iPhone, many claim that the latter has a far superior typing experience. According to XDA member boogiecornejo, this is all due to ineffective key spacing on the HD2, and the developer has created an unique solution to prove this.
By editing the virtual position of every single key, boogiecornejo has succeeded where HTC seemingly failed, in creating an almost lag-free keyboard, which is highly responsive to user input. User comments are supporting the claims – some are reporting 95% accuracy since changing and many are now reliant upon the modification when using their devices.
Boogiecornejo’s modification uses Lycox‘s GTX keyboard skin. The necessary files are available in the modification thread.

While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
