    So the "minimize keyboard" button in the lower left of the landscape qwerty keyboard works maybe every 5th time. I only started noticing this after the 2.1 OTA. However my wife has the 2.1 on her Eris as well and hers works perfectly. If I make sure to push the very top edge of the button, it works fine, but just pressing it normally in the middle rarely works. Perhaps there is something wrong with that corner if the screen. Anyone else notice anything like this?

    I have the same issue. Since I got 2.1 OTA, i have trouble minimizing the keyboard in landscape mode, so I end up having to use the back button.

    So perhaps it really is related to 2.1. That is some weird stuff. It works fine on my wife's 2.1 Eris. Weeeeird. BTW, a factory reset does NOT fix it, so don't bother. Well I guess this is officially my first 2.1 bug that actually bothers me.

    Have you tried to recalibrate or resetting the keyboard?

    Menu>settings>language&keyboard>touch input>text input>Calibration Tool or Reset Calibraton?

    Sure have, but it doesn't matter anyway as you can't calibrated the landscape keyboard, only the portrait version.

    I've also discovered this issue. It's not a huge deal for me, because i use portrait mode more. But it worked better for me if I touched the very bottom of the screen. You pretty much tap as low as you can on the button.
