Not that I'd defend that keyboard, but backspace is by stroking from
right to left over the keyboard and enter is by stroking from top to bottom.

Showing the entered stuff, is what you normally want on a keyboard, that
it shows it for password entries is, err..., debatable..., but probably
no explicit design decision :)
