    I am proud owner of HTC OneX and I love my new device.

    The only problem I have is that on the keyboard I can't find the equivalent of alt key.

    by alt key i mean is that in order to type in the numbers which are on top of qwertyyuiop keys.

    See this is how the keyboard looks in OneX


    Now can someone tell me which key is the alt key

    Have you ever tried SwiftKey? It's really the best keyboard out there. You can even skip the spacebar and it puts the space in there automatically for you. That's Swiftkey 3, the beta version. I think it's the best app ever.

    You can press and hold the key to get the characters above the normal characters.

    There is no alt key on the HTC One X. The numbers/symbols at the top of each key are meant to be used when you long press that key. For instance, if you long press "q", you will get "1". This is to speed up your typing process so that you don't need to turn to the symbol page when you just need to key in a few numbers.

    And a vote for Swype - I think every bit as good as SwiftKey, but you don't have to pay for it. The only downer for Swype is that it's not available for my Archos 80 G9 tablet because 1024x768 screens are not supported. I hope they support the One X screen.

    On the stock ics keyboard, is there a way to get rid of the voice activate key?

    Bro, HTC has already included Swype-like feature in their stock keyboard, it is called trace input. It already exists on my Sensation, and the One X as well.
