Just got a new Pre 2, to replace my old cracked Pre 2 :P
I'm incredibly satisfied with it, its fast, and the screen is so immaculate
One concerning issue I've had is the keyboard though. For some reason, the backlight is only lighting the middle of the keyboard. Around the "T" and "Y" in "QWERTY", and the rest aren't as bright. The light seems to fall off towards the edges.
Enough crappy describing, here's a photo:
It's even worse in person, especially in a dark room.
Now I live in Australia, so I don't believe there is much I can do to get it seen to. Palm would fix it under warranty, but wouldn't offer to pay the hideous fee just to get the phone over to the states.
Anything I could do? Or will I just have to live with it?
