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.

Does this have the WP7 keyboard click sound?

Sent from my ADR6300 using XDA App

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.

I've been waiting for something like this. But I've always wondered, is there a way to remove the microphone/settings key? It's really annoying to keep bumping. Right now I use Smart Keyboard Pro and I removed it.

    [KEYBOARD] Windows Phone 7

    Hey Mate,

    The Low resolution keyboard link is down from your HTC_IME Windows Phone 7 keyboard.
    Please re-upload it?

    Thanks,

    DROID Logo on Spacebar.

    Hey guys/gals, sorry for no update recently, been having school problems (I'm only a sophomore in High-School, so that comes before deving) but now I'm back, I am uploading a version WITHOUT the DROID logo on the spacebar, just blank. I am trying to have the sound figured out by tonight also.

    Sure! Install the HTC_IME Mod Found Here, and Put the Sounds to /sdcard/media/audio
    Go to Keyboard etc settings hTC_IME Mod/sound & vibration
    Mark "custom sounds" and set the sounds (sdcard/media/audio/"what you called them"
    Get the sounds from my Thread here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=11902992#post11902992 ;3

    Guys if you're having trouble with it or you just don't like the HTC IME keyboard, there's a WP7-style Gingerbread keyboard that does multitouch here. Works on Sense and AOSP ROMS:

    It's not mine, original thread is here. It's made for the Evo but it should work on other devices: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=746689
