Install Gingerbread keyboard on Eclair/Froyo devices [Android]

An XDA developer has ported the new Gingerbread stock keyboard for Eclair and Froyo devices. We’ve heard only good things about it, so there is no harm in giving it a try. It definitely is much better than the previous Stock keyboard. I personally use and like the HTC_IME keyboard but I’ll give this a shot too. You can also try Swype for a different experience or 8Pen for an entirely different experience.

Download links for Froyo and Eclair.

UPDATE: I installed and tried the keyboard on my Samsung Galaxy Spica. Works perfectly fine. And the first impression is quite good!

UPDATE: Stripped down English only version for Eclair. No vibrate too but consumes half the memory. Thanks Kenshin!
