Does anyone here agree with my that the keyboard should be a little larger in portrait view? The keys are too small, I often find myself hitting the wrong key

Actually, as weird as it sounds, I type much better in portrait view than on landscape; it's really weird and I don't have small hands or fingers lol.

If you have swype enabled then the keyboard keys will be slightly smaller than the default keyboard. I found that before using swype the keyboard was easier to actually type in... which are you using ?

I only have one answer to threads like this one. "You'll get used to it." I don't want to sound arrogant, but seriously, these things we humans can easily adapt to. I hated on-screen keyboards before. I always preferred actual hardware keys, and to some extent, I still do. But that didn't stop me from coping up and adapting. I don't want to complain, since I know I can adapt if I give it a shot.

I have had an n9 since day 1 and still miss hit a lot of keys. The Iphone keypad has larger keys; the swype keypad has larger keys. Surely the normal keypad could have larger keys too?

For portrait:
Code:
MImAbstractKeyAreaStyle.Portrait {
   background-image: "meegotouch-keyboard-background";
   /*** Key Geometry ***/
    key-height-small: -1; /* unused */
    key-height-medium: 80px;
    key-height-large: 90px;
    key-height-x-large: 98px;
    key-height-xx-large: -1; /* unused */

    key-width-small-fixed: -1; /* unused */
    key-width-medium-fixed: 48px;
    key-width-large-fixed: 72px;
    key-width-x-large-fixed: 120px;
    key-width-xx-large-fixed: 141px;
    key-width-stretched-fixed: -1; /* unused */
   
    key-margin-left: -1px;
    key-margin-top: 0px;
    key-margin-right: 0px;
    key-margin-bottom: 0px;

    padding-left: 4px;
    padding-top: 0px;
    padding-right: 4px;
    padding-bottom: 0px;
}
For Landscape:
Code:
MImAbstractKeyAreaStyle.Landscape {
   background-image: "meegotouch-keyboard-background-landscape";
   /*** Key Geometry ***/
    key-height-small: -1; /* unused */
    key-height-medium: 60px;
    key-height-large: 70px;
    key-height-x-large: 85px;
    key-height-xx-large: -1; /* unused */

    key-width-small-fixed: -1; /* unused */
    key-width-medium-fixed: 87px;
    key-width-large-fixed: 129px;
    key-width-x-large-fixed: 218px;
    key-width-xx-large-fixed: 255px;
    key-width-stretched-fixed: -1; /* unused */
   
    key-margin-left: 0px;
    key-margin-top: 0px;
    key-margin-right: -1px;
    key-margin-bottom: 0px;

    padding-left: -1px;
    padding-top: 0px;
    padding-right: 0px;
    padding-bottom: 0px;
}
Found the file on:
/usr/share/themes/[your theme]/meegotouch/libmeego-keyboard/style/libmeego-keyboard.css

Dont forget to backup the original files
