    As we all know the droid's d-pad is located under the screen on the slider. I just wonder has anyone ever come to a situation where an app or a game needs a d-pad, but doesn't support the landscape mode, so you have no choice but to use the phone in portrait with the slider open.
    and in that case would the "up" button(in landscape mode) become the "right" button, or does it still recognize it as an UP button? Is it comfortable to hold the phone that way?
    I could imagine some games that are designed for the Hero/magic would require you to use the d-pad/trackball.

    The Droid's recovery menu requires that you use the d-pad in portrait, but "up" (when held portrait-style) really is up, so it's fine.
