    I was just messing with my droid incredible keyboard (creating a text but just messing with the buttons) I found out if you hold down on the lower case b it does ) then lower case v does ( it will bring up:
    )(HTC_RUDB_v00.04.03_EricJ

    What is the version in reference to? And I'm guessing Eric J is the designer of the software? Idk just thought it was a neat egg.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Thomas

    Lol. Yea, I thought that was wierd too. Very strange that it would only auto populate using the keys that way. But yea something I found out just messing around.

    Now I just wish I knew what the version was reference to. I can't find it anywhere and I was wondering who Eric J was lol.

    Mine's the same, except it's v00.04.02. I think my Eric J needs an update.

    Very interesting! Mine does the same. I'm running a custom ROM and the keyboard is an EVO port. Are you all on stock?

    Very interesting. I'm a .02 Do you suppose the 02 and the 03 difference reflects the
    02 = Amoled and 03 = SLCD screens? Just a thought. I saw in another thread that if you go to menu>settings>about phone>hardware information>hardware version you will get a 0002 for AMOLED and 0003 for SLCD.

    Well, it requires text prediction to be on, so I'm guessing it has to do with that. Also, I get .03 but I'm on a pre-day 1 amoled. The db part makes me think database, perhaps for the prediction system.

    Well, my phone states my hardware is 0002 also. Since my version is .03 I dont think that is the case.

    Super weird. Anyone with a DINC handy that can capture a quick video showing this? Would be interestingly random enough to post as Phandroid News. If you can, link me here and thanks in advance!

    I get the 04.02 and 1.1.12 on my Dinc.
    My friend has an Eris and he gets 04.02 also, but 1.1.7 on the "normal" one.
