    i know when you touch an area to type the on screen keyboard pops-up, but how do you get it to go away to see you screen?

    It's really annoying when I am trying to type an email on landscape mode and the keyboard is blocking the view.

    I use Smart Keyboard Pro

    If I slide my finger from the top down (all within the keyboard) it makes the keyboard go away

    Can't remember if that's a default gesture or if I set it up that way

    The physical back button will do it

    Hold the menu button. That should make it go away. You can hold it to bring it up as well.
