    Ever notice it? I really love my PB (oh, I'm a newbie, and maybe this is typical of a new romance where things haven't worn out yet?) but I find that sometimes when I type certain characters, they don't appear. One example is the apostrophe ('). For example, when I key in BC for British Columbia, and the screen shows "But Clic." Another time it is "B. Click." Is this a touch sensitivity thing (I use a stylus pen) or some strange quirk of PB (text or context anticipation?).

    Any one experience strange characters showing up on keypad?

    The PlayBook must be tamed and must be taught to do what you want it to do. What did you think you bought an Ipad
    Sometimes the keyboard gets a little tricky lets say but the more you use it the less problems you will have. Soon it will recongnize B.C. and all will be good until you do a security wipe then back to day one.

    I have occasional issues with it wanting to put a period. I think it's the space bar that's a little too sensitive and when you double space it thinks you're at the end of a sentence so it puts a period and turns caps on to start a new sentence. Over time you'll get used to the keyboard and it doesn't happen as often. The "But Clic" etc sis likely something to do with the auto-complete options and I can't help you there because I have it turned off.

    rmpb: I think the "return" key, like most, if not all, computers does the same thing, i.e., begins the next typed character capitalized because it thinks you are starting a new paragraph. Hey madman, no problem taming the shrew. You know the ending of that one.

    Or predictive text. It's trying to outguess the operator's intentions.
