I have noticed that the L5 offers two keyboard layouts (at least for portrait layout, not sure how it is for landscape orientation: the disk encryption pass code can only be entered in portrait orientation).
There is the one that shows up during regular use of the phone, for instance when typing in a text editor or the browser or other apps. There are two versions of this: the simple, standard one, and the terminal one.
With this keyboard the pressed keys do not show up next your finger.
The other keyboard shows up when the L5 starts up. It is used for entering the passcode for the disk encryption.
This keyboard has outlines around the keys, and it has the pressed characters popping up next to your finger tip. Both of these features make typing a lot easier.
Is it possible to select the second type of keyboard as the standard keyboard layout, and, if not, why not?
(And on a related matter: I find the portrait mode keyboard way too small, but the landscape mode version, on the other hand, is so big, it obscures most of the screen, making it next to impossible to see what you type. Although switching between the standard and terminal layout once in landscape mode does down size the keyboard somewhat - but this strikes me as unintended behaviour.)
