    Hi guys. First post on this forum! :)

    I noticed the 4 big cursor keys on the side (landscape) and bottom (portrait) of the HTC Sense keyboard on the EVO. After playing with the HD2 that has the same layout, I prefer not having them there. It makes me have to reach farther with my right thumb to get to the spacebar and gives an unbalanced feel. I end up hitting the period by accident.

    -Can the cursor keys be removed?

    -If I install a 3rd party keyboard like Smart Keyboard or Better Keyboard (I've purchased both) on the EVO, will that get rid of the cursor keys?

    (apologies if this was asked already, tried the search but didn't find anything related)

    Thanks!

    I would say yes, they'll be removed, but they wont get magically replaced somewhere - so you'd be SOL.

    Man, I hope they'll be removed (or removable). Unsightly monsters :(.

    Totally agree. And they could have at least made them smaller.

    I hope you can turn them off on the stock keyboard, and surely other keyboards will update with a 'directional arrow' toggle.

    Odd that they left the trackpad out. It is kinda required for some games n such. Fragmentation FTW!
