Yes, the keyboard does turn horizontal if you tilt it, when using Safari web browser, but not for texting.
I really feel like horizontal texting should be in the next update, it really should or somehow in an app. :(

There is an app in cydia (iRealSMS) and you can text landscape. It's awesome!

You also have to jailbreak which some people don't feel comfortable about doing. If you are unsure, ask for help in the Modifications section :)

dude I came from an htc phone and was REAL skeptical of the whole virtual keyboard. Mainly for the same reason you are. It looks really cramped and the lack of buttons was a turn off (but I had to have a new phone and mp3 player so...)

I was super duper pleasantly surprised.
