Nexus Button Placement Design Flaw (with solution)
I was watching a video of someone texting on the Galaxy Nexus, and they said their number one complaint is that typing in portrait made it very easy to accidentally hit the home button when you really wanted to punch in a space.
My idea is to ask Google to change the button behavior to that of the camera app, where they revert to dots while you're typing so that you'd have to accidentally press the home button twice in order for it to take you out of whatever it is you're typing.
I think it's a simple enough fix. What do you guys think?

Since a dev has hadded the search key to the set up I think they can relocate the key

That would be a good idea. I kept doing the same thing on my Honeycomb tablet while typing with my thumbs. I ended up installing Thumb Keyboard. Thumb Keyboard allows me to adjust the height of the space bar. That kept me from hitting the navigation and notification buttons on my tablet.
