    Did you notice that the iPad Keyboard has a mistake?
    Or it looks like one...

    though there is a " . " and " ? " key on the keyboard near the " m " or the " shift " key, they are also aviable in the alternative keyboard, at least the " .?123 " - key says so.
    Why should they be aviable twice?
    Or did they think it wouldnt make sense to put other signs on this key?

    Those would be the two most frequently used ".?123" characters, so naturally they'd be asily accesible.

    yeah but why do i need two ways to type a "?" ?
    one way: hit the " ? . " - key and the other " .?123 " - key?

    I think it's most likely the iPad simulator in the SDK. I'd be surprised if he has an iPad... since they're not out yet

    The Android has the same thing. What if you have a question that ends with a number? For instance, "Do you have 4?" It would be easier to use the question mark in the symbols keyboard where the numbers are than going back to the alphabetic keyboard. Same goes with periods and commas.

    Also, they're still symbols, and they probably had to fill up more places as well.

    I personally hope that you could have an option to assign whatever keys you want to those two space, doubt it will happen though

    Did anyone notice that the "F" and "J" keys both have a mark on them? On a regular keyboard that is so you can find thoughs keys without looking at the keyboard by feeling the bumps, but how are you supposed to feel bumps on a touch screen?
