The addition of a virtual keyboard means that Android 1.5 devices can support both physical and virtual keyboards, packing the best of both worlds. It’s up to you to use whichever input method fits you in a specific scenario. Android’s virtual keyboard is provided in portrait or landscape orientation and works in any application, including Gmail, the browser, SMS and even in third-party programs. It comes with an auto-correct feature, suggestions and user dictionary for custom words. You can also set it up so that it gives you tactile feedback by vibrating the screen. Unlike rival mobile platforms, Android 1.5 supports user installation of third-party virtual keyboards.
