    I remember reading that a reference was found in the webOS 2.0 SDK for a virtual keyboard but haven't heard anything as to whether or not it's an actual feature of the Palm Pre 2.

    Does anyone know for sure?

    Thanks!

    This thread is like three down from yours on today's posts. But to summarize, it looks like they may have found a T9 input virtual keyboard of come kind. So far, no QWERTY...

    Maybe HP/Palm can confirm this for us? Oh, wait...they aren't even acknowledging the existence of the Pre 2 at the moment.

    No. WebOS 2.0 does not have a virtual keyboard as of this post.

    But it has a REAL keyboard. Why the need for a virtual keyboard. I don't get it . . .

    One-handed use?

    While I like the portrait slider, it's not always convenient to slide out and type a message. Some times it's nice just to type yes, k or whatever quickly without having to use two hands to slide open and type.

    Wish they'd throw at least an on screen compact qwerty in there. Nice to have both options.

    it's hard to interpret sarcasm off the intrawebz.
    an emoticon would help.

    there are tons of popular phones out there that have keyboards and onscreen keyboards.
    for instance the G1, G2, droid, cliq, about half of the android phone market....

    it doesn't have one but obviously they are preparing for it. That's why the just type is on the home screen. That's the only thing that makes since. Tap the just type and vk pops up so you can search. This also shows to me they have a slab in the works about to be shown at ces.

    If it helps, I hear this is or will be a virtual keyboard for $1.99 in the app catalog.
