Are there two verions of the Droid keyboard?

    Somebody on another forum said they returned their Droid and got another one, and says they think the keyboard feels way better. They submitted two pictures, one of their old Droid, one of their new Droid.

    Maybe there is some type of illusion going on, but it definitely looks like his new Droid has keys that are more rounded/sticking out more.

    I am not sure if this has been discussed (this is finals week at college, and I am procrastinating right now).

    Hard to tell. I wish the angles were identical.

    On my 6th Droid, and the keyboard have been all the same. My first was a 39/09 build, and my current phone is a 47/09 build. I have also had a 40/09, 41/09, 42/09, and a 43/09. All the same. They all look like you can just peel the keys right off.

    what are you doing to your poor phone? it's pretty hard to believe someone got five bad phones in a row.

    Looks like the different camera angles are causing the keys to look different.

    LOL...not doing anything to it. I have pretty exacting quality standards, so when the main buttons are purple or dim, or the slider was loose, or the software froze, I exchanged it. I have experienced the gamut of Droid issues, but stuck it out. 6th time is a charm, because the current device is flawless (as far as a piece of technology can be) as far as I am concerned.

    you returned it when Android froze? You do know that ALL software WILL HAVE BUGS. There has never been and never will be a perfect piece of software.
