Touchscreen keyboard vs. slideout keyboard - the decimal key

This is more of a quirk than an actual problem

 

If you use the touchscreen to input numbers, specifically dollar amounts, when the number lock is on, where the decimal point key should be is an equal sign. (pressing the space key does not give you a decimal either)

 

On the slide out keyboard when the number lock is on it actually performs decimals. (the "M" key)

 

Something that should be looked at on a future firmware rev.

I agree. I had this conversation with a friend just over the weekend.
The same problem is on the Storm 1 and 2 touchscreen keyboards.
