    I use blackberry curve for business (Pre for personal phone), and have gotten VERY used to the automatic shortcuts the keyboard provides. The two functions I would be most interested in are:

    1) Holding any letter key for .5 second or more causes the letter to be automatically capitalized. Current WebOS function requires 'Shift+letter'.

    2) Pressing the Space bar twice at the end of a sentence automatically inserts a period and advances one space at the end of the sentence. Current WebOS function requires 'period, then space'.

    While they don't make a huge difference in typing speed, they definitely do save keystrokes over time and would make the (admittedly small-ish) Pre keyboard quicker to use. It would also make my constant switching between devices a heck of a lot easier!

    Many thanks to anyone willing to take this on!!!

    1) Totally agree. The repeating-letter action carried over from desktop keyboards is laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaame.

    2) I would welcome this change, but I really don't miss it that much after a few weeks with a dedicated period key.

    I would not only love this b/c I think hold for caps is great...the repeat letter is very annoying. Does anyone really need to type in 100 Ts or Is???

    I'm a Blackberry convert and both of those features are missed on my Pixi.

    EDIT: Knobbysideup seems to indicate that the double space period is not possible on the Pixi. I still would like to have the "hold letter to make it capital" feature.

    KeyBoss makes any keyboard modifications possible.
