Default [REQ] Tweaks to remove Arrow Keys from Keyboard

Hi guys, I am not sure if many of you have this problem, but the arrow keys on the bottom row is really a pain, as it is just below the space bar.

More often than not, when I try to tap the space bar, I tend to accidentally hit the arrow keys below it, causing T9 to change to an alternate word.

This has been very annoying to me. I have done some search and found quite a few complains from the others as well regarding this issue.

I personally find no use for the keys to be there. and I believe same goes to most of you HD2 users.

Can I please ask for some help from the expert around to create a tweak or maybe some step by step guide to remove the arrow keys from the bottom row of the keyboard, making the keyboard shorter.

This is something that I believe will help many of us out there. thanks for viewing.

Your help will be appreciated!

PS: I have tried finger keyboard, but it still have the arrow keys, and i am having some problem with the suggesting contact names. I really hope some one could just remove the arrow keys from the original keyboard, as it is really good aside from the arrow keys being there. Thanks Again!

Maybe something like the HD Mini, it has a button to switch between having the arrows and disabling them.

This would have the added bonus of freeing up more screen real estate. Or bigger buttons would be nice.

If I made you laugh or I helped you in some way, click the 'Thanks' button.
If I upset you or made you cry, get a grip; this isn't real life! It's XDA Developers!

The simple solution is for some third-party developer to design an alternative VK that finally utilizes the upgraded screen real-estate.

Android has tons of different keyboard layouts... developers just need to jump on-board with Windows Mobile.
