Portrait Mode for Messages, Contacts, Calendar



since I never owned a BlackBerry phone, I really appreciate the new Messages, Contacts, and Calendar applications in PlayBook OS 2.0.


However I write the fastest on my PlayBook when I thumb type in portrait mode. Can we please have a portrait mode for the new applications? The Messages application in particular would benefit from it and I would use it more often to write new emails (and not only read them).

Agreed with you on the typing experience.   This is an area we definitely know about and are working to address it.
