Indeed, I too found out that the keyboard in default 2008.8 is only "plain
english", but I'm Dutch, and most of my texts would be in Dutch as well. So
that makes that keyboard less than functional for me.

BTW, as a test, I tried to type "Laporte" with the keyboard, since I heard
from Leo Laporte that on the Iphone his name was very hard to type. And it
seems that it's just impossible to type it on the Openmoko 2008.8 stock

I'm also going to test how to work with the keyboard when in a terminal
mode, since I'm yet to be able to hit enter after entering a command.
(typing the command works, but then pressing enter to execute it has yet to
function for me) I could be doing something wrong, but I'm not sure.
