There is a method, but it requires alot of downloads....Android SDK, Eclipse SDK and Java SDK.
I, too, was enamored with Android screenshots when I first saw them on a couple of blogs

Back to the original topic, though, there's a lot of special characters on Android...I discovered them by mistake by pressing down the S key for too long. Nice if you want to talk about foreign currencies and whatnot.
Can some one tell me how to get a _ ( underscore ) on the keypad ?
First press and hold the Alt key then the 'E' key ...
This is the same as any of the symbols in the color of the ALT key ...
