My buddy that the works in verizon sales at one of the stores in my area got his droid mailed to him on Monday after release date (which is normal protocol if you work for verizon, you cannot buy it at the store on launch day). Anywayyyy, as you may assume he has held hundreds of droids since it has been released and every keyboard is the same except for his. He said he has yet to see a keyboard resemble what his feels like and he estimates holding around 250 droids so far. The keys on my buddy's keyboard are super bubbly. They are raised up dramatically compared to the normal droid keyboard. It's incredible and I'm super surprised that if it was a purposeful design, WHY WAS IT REMOVED . It's incredibly easier to type with his keyboard vs mine. Like everyone elses keyboard, it's practically flat with very little distinction between keys. Each individual key on his is substantially raised, making it much easier to distinguish where you are located on the keyboard. If I can get him to take a high res picture of it I'll try and post it...it's so substantial you can easily see the difference.
