    What do you mean by "special keys" ?

    Any ctrl- or alt- key combo. Without which linux is basically unusable. Arrow keys still don't work (they move the mouse pointer rather than the text cursor) -- I will look into that perhaps next week.

    rsidd means the special keys don't work in ubuntu running on chroot. They don't have much of a role to play in Android, and aren't mapped anyway. In case one uses a console and needs basic shell functionality from the keyboard, I recommend using the Hacker's Keyboard (on-screen, GPL, available in the Market for free), which captures keystrokes such as arrow keys, tab, etc. and translates them to whatever works on Android.

    Thanks to rsidd I got my case today,typing from that KB. got it for rs 1200 odd, by ordinary mail, nothing extra.The clasp closes over usb port .top flap does not close. the stand is very useful as i can put it on my bed and type,since thestand is attached to the back with a strap. overall happy but afrai8d the kb might scratch the screen, not using screen protector

    Ramana, Buy a very thin microfiber cloth to lay in their before closing the keyboard against the screen.

    I got mine yesterday (took approx a week to get to Italy).
    I'm terribly disappointed because mine doesn't work at all!!!! Only 2-3 keys actually work, like 5, 6, caps-lock and maybe few others. It's a complete brick, unusable!!!!

    Tested with Adam and two different laptos with the same result.

    I just wrote to the company. Let's see if they have any customer support

    Stef: sorry to hear that. Mine has been fine till date: the only issues I have are Android-related. Hope you get a response.

    Thanks! Actually they replied asking for more details. They sound collaborative for the moment...we will see!

    Did you check the uploaded AndroidVNC version? I still cannot use special keys in AC03 and Gentoo

    Oops, forgot to check earlier. I just did -- the uploaded one is the same one that I am running. Special keys work fine in my VNC. Odd.
