    Anyone notice that those buttons are really bright? Is there any way to turn them down?

    The four bottom keys are illuminated only under certain circumstances. An ambient light sensor picks up the brightness in the surrounding area and gives a raw number to the Android Operating System. Based on that raw number, the system will choose to illuminate those four keys and dim/brighten the screen.

    The only way (when I had my Droid) to disable these four keys is to root the phone and download an app called LEDs Hack from the market.
