I think it was one of the instructional videos about using the keyboard where the guy ("Bob"?) said how easy it will be to master the virtual keyboard....."if you trust the multi-touch"...or something like that. Well I have to say he was correct. I first thought it was odd to click the space bar to accept the suggested word and to click the suggested word to cancel it. But if you just keep your eyes on the keyboard and concentrate on "typing", it takes care of any mistakes you might make. Sure it will let some mistakes sneak through, but how about that magnifying glass to navigate through your text? Genius way to avoid having 4 additional navigation arrows that we have on keyboards.
Not exactly multi-touch, but I love how the iPhone recognizes names from your contacts. And no more typing apostrophes for "don't", "wont", "can't". Just type the work without it and it's put in for you. And typing an "i", followed by a space automatically capitalizes it.
The other thing I just noticed is in SMS messages. I sent a couple of long ones today and as I was typing the text started to scroll past where I could see. But if you "scroll" with your finger within the editing space, it will actually scroll the text so you can proofread your long SMS message before sending it. Nice.
