    It would be sweet if the Droid (or OS 2.0.1 as the case may be), when switching orientation from portrait to landscape, would keep the keyboard showing if it was already showing in the prior orientation. Often, I'll be typing a text in portrait mode and then realize that I'd prefer to type faster and more accurately. However, when I switch to landscape orientation, I have to click/highlight the text box in order for the virtual keyboard to show again. It's a bit of a hassle. Oh yeah, for the hardware keyboard lovers out there that suggest I use it instead...I hate the hardware keyboard...though curiously, the keypad is pretty nice for moving the cursor.

    you dont have to drag it to get the keyboard up, just tap the entry form and the keyboard pops back up in the new orientation

    Altimax, that's exactly what I was talking about...I have to tap the entry form to get the keyboard again. If it was opened in portrait mode, why the heck doesn't it stay open in landscape mode.

    Messenger, I presume you're just kidding around. It's the little elegant touches that distinguish one OS from another. As a former coder, trust me, they add up.
