Run the Droid X Keyboard on your Nexus One


Brandon recently unboxed the Droid X and commented on how much he likes its keyboard.

Thanks to the skilled hackers over at, Nexus One owners can use the Droid X’s keyboard on their phones, too!

What’s so impressive about the Droid X’s keyboard? It offers full multi-touch capabilities that are different from other “multi-touch” keyboards currently available. The Droid X’s lets you hold down shift key and press a letter to make a capital, which mimics the behavior of regular keyboards.

A few things to note, the ampersand character isn’t rendering right, there isn’t a “vibrate on keypress” option, and voice input doesn’t work (plus a few other bugs on Eclair), but progress it being made.

If you’d like to see what’s impressed Brandon, why not give it a try? The link to the .APK is available here.
