    I had this problem before LOL, It turned out it was because of the way I was holding the phone. Whenever I would go to scroll with my thumb my palm would touch another part of the screen at the same time and it would go crazy. I have since adjusted the way I hold the phone and haven't had any more problems.

    I use the phone with two hands and have this issue occasionally.

    Think it is more an OS bug that hopefully will be rectified by a future update.

    There are a lot of people posting this issue on the google forums. For some it's a case of holding the phone so that other fingers are inadvertently pressing keys, but some it isn't and they are awaiting a fix from google.. Or the phone will have to be returned under the warranty..

    You would be sending it to Milton Keynes - I contacted the HTC UK website to ask (and I don't have a Nexus... lol) - that's where their UK service centre is based.

    But looking on google, the software reset only may make it go away for a short period of time. I'd be interested to hear if it comes back...
