    From what I've tried, the EVO only has portrait and left-oriented (aka turn the phone on its left side) landscape viewing. Is there any way to enable right-oriented landscape viewing (aka turn the phone on it's right side)? It is very difficult to hold the phone in left-landscape when it's charging and nearly impossible to type with two hands.

    Help?

    That's something that's been complained about for a long time. Hero's (and I'm sure others)were the same way. It's just the way it's designed/programmed.

    I'm hard wired to turn the phone to the left, it'd be weird turning to the right.

    Not unless HTC releases a new version of sense with that enabled, which i doubt they will do.

    if this isn't possible with root and a current custom ROM, it will be eventually.

    I'm not too concerned about HTC making Sense landscape-able but the other apps should be able to reorient themselves. Bummer... This makes typing a lot more difficult in landscape mode while charging.
