Is this a bug or behavior by design?

Do the following:

  1. press the green dial button
  2. tap the "contacts" tab on the touch screen
  3. tap the "Find Contact or Dial a Number" area

After step three, the virtual keyboard will pop up but none of the characters will show up (except for the numbers).   I would think it would let me to type a name or something.     Is this common to everyone?
