    Idk if i explaind it so you can understand what im saying but ill try to get proof.

    I've seen a few posts about different keyboards, can't say the same for boxes. I do know my Droid has a flat keyboard, and the box was pretty small. Week 42/09 if that matters.

    Wait, wasn't the biggest complaint about the Droids keyboard that it was too flat from get get-go?

    This is like some conspiracy theory or something......jeez! There is one type of keyboard. Some have raised keys, some have flat keys, some have flat keys that become slightly raised over time. It's clearly a manufacturing process causing these differences, but there is no different keyboard.

    The keys seem to deform some with use.

    My keyboard was flat when I bought it, but I only use the hardware keyboard. My keys have since become "bubbled" to a degree, which does help in using the kb. People who ignore their keyboard will still have flat keys.

    +1. I use the physical keyboard 99% of the time, and have noticed slight bubblage, if you will. Definitely helps differentiate the keys when typing quickly.

    i found some droids that where RMAs and they came in the Log style box and they keys are raised on those. They are brand new but RMA so ill compair them to the ones that come in the small square box

    I think people are noticing minor unit-to-unit differences and attribute them to purposeful manufacturing changes rather than random variation. Humans love to see patterns where none exist. Just watch them in a casino.
