This is not so much a complaint but a suggestion:
(1) I tend to use my Pb in landscape most of the time. As a result, my two thumbs get a considerable workout during a day's use. But this has also led me to regard the omni-present dock as basically useless and a waste of valuable screen space. Rather than using the dock, I prioritize my app icon arrangement on each panel so that the left-most and right-most vertical column of icons (the columns closest to my thumbs) are the apps I use the most. The second column in on each side are my secondary apps, while the apps towards the vertical center of the screen are the least used.
SUGGESTION: Provide a checkbox option in the General setup panel to show/hide the dock area.
(2) I have also found that the landscape keyboard is a bit too wide for comfortable thumb typing. For us thumbers, having to "reaaach" to the center of the screen is a real pain. It also reduces typing speed and is more prone to striking the wrong key--especially [space].
SUGGESTION: Provide an option for a "Split Keyboard" in landscape mode?

Good ideas. I hate when I hit the period instead of the space bar. Bluetooth keyboard is also a good solution - but not always practical. Unless you have a Blackberry keyboard it works fine only when the unit is in the cradle.
Why was only BlackBerry smart enough to make a Bluetooth keyboard with a built in touchpad mouse???? I hate to carry two devices.
