    I have a new rMini with a keyboard issue. On some websites, the numeric entry on the top row of the keyboard is flaky. 7, 8 . Or 9 will misregister as the next higher number. 9 will actually register as a delete. This only happens on some sites when filling in web forms. If I type numbers into a text app like mail or notes, everything works fine. However my zipcode of 14589 registers as 1457 delete. Seems like a software issue and not a digitizer issue. Anyone else seeing this?

    I'm not sure I've had your exact case, but lately I have noticed that I could have sworn I typed the correct key, but the key to the right of the one I pressed is what gets typed.

    Is this another iBug?

    Seems site specific

    The web form from the ATT settlement site reached by clicking thru from this page:

    The zipcode code field is wonky. I had the same problem on another site but can't remember which.

    The keyboard registers fine on non-Safari apps and also on most web sites. I'm wondering how javascript could cause the keys to misregister. hold your finger on "8" and the "9" key turns grey. "9" often invokes backspace which is 2 keys over.
