[Q] Virtual keyboard problem, anyone else having this issue?
I've noticed that when I'm using the on-screen virtual keyboard in landscape mode, with the phone held either straight up and down or overhead (when lying on my back), pressing some of the keys on the far left side pull down the status bar rather than giving me the letter, character, etc. that I'm pressing. Instead, they cause the status bar to drop down and display status messages.
The most common letter at fault is A. The shift key also does this sometimes.
I have to tilt the phone such that the display is pointing slightly upwards rather than being straight on in order to get the A key to work.
It happens when composing SMS messages, Facebook entries, forum entries via any web browser (stock, Dolphin, Boat, Miren): any time i'm using the soft keyboard in landscape mode with the phone held perpendicular to the floor or tilted so the display is facing slightly downward.
I first noticed this on my Samsung Galaxy Ace when it still had the stock Froyo on it, and I got the same problems with stock Gingerbread, CodeROM, VillainROM and others. Now I own a Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro with its stock Gingerbread and I have the same problem on it, so it seems to be a generic Android issue, but ?? Is anyone else having this issue?
