    Is there a keyboard that splits the keyboard in half - so say in landscape mode, holding iPad2 with two hands and use both thumbs to type.

    Please explain your needs - you can 'double thumb' type w/ the virtual keyboard - I'm assuming that you want a 'physical' keyboard that is split in some fashion?

    Sorry, just not sure about your question? :(

    Yes, an app that splits the keyboard.
    With current keyboard, my thumbs don't reach the center (the T,Y,G H,B ) keys.

    Unfortunately, there is nothing at this time.

    However, iOS 5 is "right around the corner" and the default keyboard is supposed to be able to do this split.

    Just got to wait until the fall/Autumn...

    In that case, I'll cross my fingers - umm, thumbs.

    Thanks.

    My thoughts are that you need to not hi-jack this thread and open your own.;)
