Default [KEYBOARD] Windows Phone 7 Styled Keyboard *Low-Res Added* (CWM3 added) (5-24-11)

Windows Phone 7 Styled Keyboard for Android
(Based off HTC IME mod)

This is a simple keyboard made to look like the Windows Phone 7 keyboard. I am an Android Enthusiast, so I couldn't switch to WP7 just for the keyboard, so I just made my own. Confirmed working on Gingerbread and Froyo, so I'm assuming it should work on 2.2, 2.1, etc. It not please leave in comments. Screenshots are attached, if you like it click thanks!

*EDIT* Some people have said it is not working on Low-Res phones. I will make a Low-Res and post it below.

HIGH-RES PHONES ONLY

Download Keyboard (has DROID on Space) (it's an apk file so just install like any other app): http://www.mediafire.com/?n982pf2fo56s4rf

Keyboard WITHOUT DROID Logo on Keyboard, it is just a blank SpaceBar: http://www.mediafire.com/?g8bzntfu59i0rvo

LOW-RES PHONES ONLY

Download (Low-Res Phones):http://www.mediafire.com/?y03yg5ot9tqzvt0

It's not a skin, it's a full separate keyboard. So no it shouldn't replace anything, unless you already have the HTC IME mod keyboard installed, then it might replace that, I haven't tried though.

Unfortunately no, the click sound is not part of the keyboard in any phone, it is inside the phone's system at /system/media/audio/ui. If you could find the WP7 keyboard sound and make an .ogg file out of it then you could theoretically replace those to get the right sound.

If you want though, I'll try and make a quick flashable zip to get the sounds, I just got them working on mine. But if you know how to use adb I can give you those instructions also.
