I assume you mean a hardware keyboard for the iPhone. Surprisingly, there doesn't seem to be any rolling off the factory at this time but here's something that looks promising. Hopefully, it will make it to market soon:

No, he means replacement virtual keyboard.

How about the storm keyboard?

In my experience, that one is the most susceptible to fat-fingering. No vkeyboard is really bigger than the stock one. Changing the font, though, may give the illusion of bigger size.

The font size doesn't have anything to do with the keyboard itself, illusion or real.

I thought the system fonts in FontSwap affect the keyboard too. Apparently, not. That's a good idea for an update.

kakofonix, the keyboard font doesn't change when you change the system font, you have to install a new keyboard for that.

Kaba, I'm sure they're are several, but miPhone QWERTY 3.0 is the only one I've tried with 3x. It adds some frequently used punctuation keys to the main keyboard.

Europa, do you know the path that Cydia installs the OLD (not updated) keyboard themes to, and where they SHOULD be installed to on the 3.0.x file system?
