Google After countless rumours, leaked screenshots, and what not, Google has officially unveiled Android 2.3, dubbed Gingerbread, today. Accompanying the release of this new Android version is the Nexus S, a Samsung-made successor to HTC's Nexus One, which delivers the pure Google experience - unlocked, without additional crap.

Word suggestions: improved?

I haven't played with an version of Android since 1.5, so not sure is this has already been fixed or not.

When typing (via onscreen or hardware keyboard), do the word suggestions still cause the screen to jump around, by pushing the text input field up and down?

There's nothing worse than having the input box move up while typing a word (as the suggestions appear) then have it move down when you hit the space key (suggestions line disappears). Typing really fast can lead to headaches. ;)

Has this been fixed in later versions of Android?

Yes. Or I think so. I have a lot of keyboards, I don't think I use the stock android one that much. That's sort of what's pretty cool about an open platform, if you don't like the way a built in part works, there is usually a third party replacement that does what you want.

Heh, that would be true, except this LG Eve is stuck with Android 1.5, and all the nice apps and tools (like fancy keyboards) require 1.6. The LG keyboard and the stock keyboard work the same way when it comes to bouncing the screen to show word suggestions.
