    Every once in a while I get the keyboard on the homescreen. I don't know how , it seems to stay on after I close an app that required some sort of text input.
    Watching closely the news/reviews about the Keyone I tried to hold a key down to see if I can assign a shortcut . To my surprise it worked!
    Now the million $ question : is it possible to activate the BB keyboard on the homescreen?

    Thanks

    The same had occurred with my DTEK60. Thinking a bug perhaps?

    What do you mean "bug" ? The fact that the keyboard shows up on the home screen?
    Well I don't think so . As I already mentioned when I long pressed a key it gave me an option to assign a shortcut , which I did and it works.
    Because of that I think it's more of an oversight . They might want to save this sort of features only for the Keyone . Given that it's already possible I 'm hoping that they will officially implement it as well .

    Tried it , wont work. Android has the buttons at the bottom + the swipe shortcuts. This OS isn't much gestures oriented anyway.
