    I love the idea. I use Excel a lot too.
    I would think you'd want the numbers to be lined up as they are on a standard keyboard:
    Also wouldn't it be useful to have the / * - + included? and for quick data entry put the 'enter' key to the right of the numbers?

    Just my thoughts. Great idea!

    It's not possible to replace the keyboard on the PB. The only option for doing this would be to write a full spreadsheet ("Excel") app from scratch, and program it to not use the system keyboard but to display it's own instead. Which is obviously a mammoth task. Perhaps the layout will be improved in BB10?
