    After upgrading to the leaked release of 2.2 I noticed the [.,] button has been changed to sole-y a [.] is there a method of changing this, or a keyboard which mimics the 2.1 keyboard?

    I just tried it and it works well, but I am a fan of the traditional droid keyboard look. Would it be possible to change the actual keyboard's setup as opposed to using a different looking keyboard?

    Yeah, it is part of the leaked update.
    Works pretty well.
    But the keyboard is killing me. Though, its mostly my near OCD levels of picky-ness.

    I can't stand the 2.1 keyboard on the X. So the 2.2 version is worse? I had to go with Better Keyboard. $3, not bad.

    I frequently use the , so having to swap to an alternate set of keys is a bit of a pain.
    But as I stated, its really just me being nit-picky.
    The keyboard isn't bad at all.
    Just the single , isnt of my personal preference.

    I wish could complain or compliment on the keyboard change. I'm still waiting for 2.2.
