I am, in fact serious. I can't remember where I read it, as it was over a year ago... Trying to find the link now, sadly, would be needle in haystack.
Also, the thud made me think sarcasm but I assumed genuine surprise based on the lack of /s or :/.
I make many more mistakes with my 4.3" WP8 than my 3.7" WM6.5 with Swype.It seems many people prefer WP keyboard thanks to its auto-correct feature. Which means you can make typo but the OS correct it fine.
This is two separate issues to me. How about a keyboard designed so well that we make minimum typo, and those seldom chances that we do the OS correct the typo just fine?
Coming from an HTC Thunderbolt, I love the WP8 keyboard. Works really well for me. My only wish is that I want to be able to store new words in the dictionary but that's a minor thing.
