no normal delete key that I see and no tab either.

 

not too bad about tab, since tap a filed can can get you there

 

I am used to a BlackBerry smart phone not having a normal delete key (called delete but backspace) so it dont bother me much.

For the record, you can do a regular delete on the smartphones by holding ALT when you hit the backspace. I don't see a way to do this on the Playbook..

Re: is there a <tab> key in the keyboard?

Definitely missing a 'tab key'. Yes, you can leave the key board and click the next field (if you can see it with out closing the key board). My question is 'why'?

 

Just add a TAB key. Tablets make great data collection devices. Moving between fields in an efficient manner is key.
