    not sure if this has been discussed or not, but i noticed that when i'm using the keyboard and a call comes in, to answer the phone it says to slide one way, but you really need to slide upwards to answer it. same goes for ignoring a call - it says to slide sideways but you really need to slide down to ignore. i don't recall this happening after the 2.0.1 update. what's up with this?

    yeah but the arrows shouldn't say it should be slided to the left or right - it should be pointing up or down when in landscape mode :blink:

    in a way it is still right...

    guess they're thinking it as a clock or circle, would you turn a circle up or down? =P

    The arrows that you slide to answer for a call turn ninty degrees essentially.
