    The changes you propose can be submittet at Issues - android - Google Code.
    There are some keyboard applications available for the scandinavian language, at Android Market (search for "Scandinavian"), but I haven't used any of those. Maybe worth a try.

    I've been thinking of this mutch myself, the scandinavian keyboard that you can download on the market does not work for the Magic, so it's not worth downloading. I really hope that this can be released in a firmware update or someone could recreate an app to get this to work. Atleast the letters added in the T9 keyboard, and it also would be nice if it was added same method as in iPhone in the QWERTY keyboard for the Android.

    The App called Scandinavian keyboard is now updated and works with Magic, therefor it adds the letters to the Qwerty, to enable it when you are going to type something hold the "Tap to compose" area and select input method, from there choose Scandinavian Keyboard and thats it :)

    Allthough I found HTC's compact qwerty pretty good to use though, it also has
