Lol love your post, especially the end part...till the iPhone 5 lol.

Plus I don't really have the spare money for a new phone right now ;(
My 3GS was getting so dam slow. Oh my god the screen on 4s is amazing. When I got my iPad 2 was thinking the screen was amazing . I bet iPad 3 will have 4s screen .

Wow! I just discovered that you can use voice dictation in the eiC App on the iP4S.

I put in that keyboard modification today. Haven't had enough time to form an opinion yet.

Gonna call this keyboard modification an unusable beta.

It forces you to hit confirm and space to complete words entered correctly thus slowing down data entry severely.
It offers choices that aren't even words.
It totally interferes with entering passwords.
It makes editing a composition extremely difficult.
I think it's interfering with the upload options in the EiC app.

Lastly, it demonstrates to me that the portrait mode screen on the iPhone/iPod touch is absolutely too small for enhanced keyboards.

Aside, I'm thinking Nuance has a huge challenge ahead of them if they're trying to port Swype over to the iPhone/iPod touch.

I know it's a beta, but it's quite bad. Anyone feel anything otherwise?

Settings-General-Accessibility-Speak Selection
With Speak Selection turned on, whenever you highlight a word or words within any app it will give you the option to: Copy-Define-Speak. You can highlight a complete email and it will read it all to you.
Really? Cool! I have to check that out!
