    Im enjoying this phone more and more. The physical keyboard is probably its strongest feature. These shortcut keys remind me of the blackberry tour and Treo 755p I use to have.

    I don't think I am using them right. Can you hold down a letter and launch an application?

    You hold down the "search" button and press the letter you want to launch a certain app etc..

    So for Gmail, you would hold down the "search" touch sensitive button and press the letter "C"

    If you want to see the defaults go to Settings > Applications > Quick Launch. You can then set them your preferred way.

    Also, in case you forget what your shortcut keys are, Just add a shortcut key to your desktop.


    Press and Hold anywhere on the home screen> Press "Shortcuts"> Press "Settings"> Press "Quick Launch"

    and your good to go!

    I don't own a Droid Pro, and I haven't played with one yet, but out of curiosity, why does the letter "c" control Gmail?

    it stands for "Cool Mail" ....just kidding.. Honestly you can change it to any letter. I have mine to "G" so I just hold the "Search" key down and "G" and thats it. I wish I could just tap the "Search" button and then hit "G" although I should probably set it to "E"

    I don't see them as user friendly, especially if you want to use a key on right side. My hope would be a situation where you tap a button once and then proceed to your designated key.

    Well it takes a while to get use to but once you get the hang of things it nice. Although I wish there was an option to just be able to press just the letter rather than the search key and letter..kinda like blackberry
