    8900 keyboard movement

    I just noticed that when I put a finger on any key and "wiggle" it up and down, the whole keybaord moves-the keys that is. Is this normal?

    Mine does that too...I believe that is they way the keyboard was designed as one connected piece that probably allows the individual keys to be pressed.

    That is the way it is. The keyboard is a floating circuit board. My Curve did the same. I do find the 8900 keyboard to have a better "snap" than my old Curve. Movement is normal

    Ditto. But it doesn't move as much as some Curves I've had.

    Well same in here. Initially I thought the keyboard is defective but then found out that it is designed so..

    Thank goodness it moves - it's a different piece of hardware from the rest of the phone, set on a gel like surface which allows for vertical push down and horizontal movement: if it was a solid state it would break apart... we don´t realize how much pressure (vertical and horizontal) we put on the keyboard. I tell you it's considerable, and for this reason it has to be flexible.
