    I know it has to do with background tasks. I've tested it by having last.fm running in the background while typing something on MehDoh. Everytime I hit next on top to switch to the next song, my keyboard disappears.

    It should be a really really simple fix for Microsoft. I can't see it being more than a few lines of code telling the keyboard to only respond to 3 things, either the back button, a touch on the screen, or the enter button.

    This should have already been fixxed.

    The only reason I can imagine it happening more frequently to users is because the more they use the phone, the more they probably have installed background tasks.

    Could be, but it's so random you can't tell.. Its at a point where 99% of the time the keyboard drops out when I'm typing. Sometimes multiple times while trying to type a text message other times maybe once. My keyboard just disappeared right before this sentence. This has been an issue long enough I don't know why there isn't a fix yet.

    Same issue and very annoying to work around. Its little niggles like this that really hurt an otherwise good OS. Hope Tango fixes this and the occasional swipe/tap misread.

    Im not looking for miracles but I seriously thought some very obvious things were gonna be fixed in mango (separate volume controls for keyboard and media, better silence/vibrate functions, custom themes colors and message tones. I have to say I was disappointed. And now the keyboard is something that needs to be fixed too.
    I read somewhere that tango is not really an "update" but a primer for Apollo. I also read its a minor fix for some barely noticeable software issues, mostly in the Asian community. I read that it's an upgrade for low-end devices. And the last I heard was its really a major update but Microsoft doesn't wanna let the cat outta the bag.. Does anyone really know what tango is?

    not really whats been said is indeed somewhat all over the place but we should be finding out in the next few months. At the arte the 7740 and firmware for focus are coming out maybe they are waiting for tango to get that out!
