    If you just start typing on the keyboard without being in a text entry field- for example from your home screen- it will automatically open a quick search window for you. This makes the default google search widget redundant for keyboard users.
    With the Search soft button at the bottom, I find the Google search widget to be pretty redundant anyway...and you can long press the Search soft key to bring up the voice search, which is what I do 99% of the time.

    Not for me....how weird....
    As others have said it could be another app using the button, but I've noticed on my Droid that the button almost seems to have two stages, and when I THINK I'm pressing and holding it, I'm really not.

    Click their image and a speak bubble will appear with a list of options of how to communicate with that contact.

    Found something cool worth posting? Post it up!
    How come the GMAIL option doesn't come up here? Just the regular mail option.

    Ah ha! It's a long press on the search softkey, not on the widget! I was wondering why that didn't work for me. Thanks.!

    another one is if you have a application you want to uninstall long press on it in your application list/drawer drag it to the garbage can and hold it there until it says uninstall application. Then release and it will take you directly to the uninstall screen.
