Jep it's driving me nuts. I have installed SwiftKey which has arrow keys. That is a quick workaround but it's very annoying nevertheless. Probably related to the other touchscreen driver issues the tablet has. Can't wait for an update. I really hope they take care of it, they must be aware of the issues. If not then I'm sure a dev here on xda will take care of it eventually but that might take time..
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
