    Kind of silly, but my biggest gripe with the Droid Keyboard is the O and 0 problem I seem to have.

    If you look at the Keyboard it's laid out as:

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0
    Q W E R T Y U I O P

    It never fails, when I type a number I'll select ALT then press O instead of 0, I do it every time. Drives me NUTS! On a normal keyboard I don't have this problem, but on the tiny keys I keep doing it ><

    You'll learn. I've never done this. My Dell Mini 9 keyboard is worse. the O and 0 line up exactly.

    I've done it a few times also, that's why i kinda wish it were a 5 row keyboard, or they put numbers instead of the Dpad. I hardly ever use that thing anyway...

    I've had the phone since the day it came out, and I caught myself doing this constantly at first. I guess it just takes some time to learn. I definitely agree that it wasn't the smartest design though.

    News to me... considering you have to hit "ALT" to get to the ZERO I don't see this as an issue at all :)
