    Long time lurker, first time poster...

    From what information I can gather from the web, android browser shortcuts are comprised of MENU + X combinations. Is there an equivalent for the Eris?

    I do not see how this works given the lack of a real keyboard. To open the keyboard take a separate action and when holding MENU to then click the appropriate letter, all you get is the menu.

    Am I missing something?

    Thank you for the reply. Google reveals that the following are android shortcuts for the browser:

    Go back a page MENU + j
    Go forward a page MENU + k
    Find on page MENU + f

    With the Eris, these do not work. Or am I missing something?

    No, I don't think they would work on a device without a physical keyboard. What are they supposed to do?
