    If you press and hold a letter on the Moment, it should pop up a menu of alternate symbols or letters (such as

    What application did you try to enter the text? I composed an email using K-9 Mail app and also tried it in Google Search box. In both cases it worked, and with both physical and on-screen keyboards.

    it works on mine, but only when I hold down the physical key's. it doesn't work for me when I use the on screen keyboard.

    Yes, a bug, the on-screen keyboard is not complete for stock Messaging app. Both keyboards worked successfully on off the Market apps for email, text-messaging, and twitter clients. So this should not be a deal breaker. :)

    @momentoid: are you saying the physical keyboard should be able to produce accents on the *stock* SMS app or not? Because it didn't on the phone.

    I wanted to try it in another app, but there didn't seem to be a notepad app and I couldn't add calendar entries or contacts without first signing into a Google account, and I didn't want to do that on the store demo phone.

    Both keyboards fail on stock SMS app for accented lettering. However, there are better alternatives for SMS on the Market, and I use 'Handcent SMS' app on which both keyboards work.

    OK, thanks for clarification. I will try another demo using a different app.

    Can someone please tell me specifically how the hardware keyboard does the accents (in the apps where it works). Do you:
    push and hold letter,
    use cursor arrows to make choice,
    push something to accept?
    Or must you tap the screen to accept?

    Thanks--I can' t get to a store anytime soon.

    * With on-screen keyboard:
    - touch and hold the letter
    - accented list appears
    - touch the accented letter to select

    * With physical keyboard
    - click and hold the letter
    - accented list appears
    -- use optical-pad to traverse and click optical-pad or <Enter> to select or
    -- use arrow-keys to traverse and click <Enter> to select, or
    -- touch accented letter on the screen to select

    Thanks, momentoid! I think there's a Samsung Moment in my very near future.
