 We are trying to figure out the reason why a long press on the Options
Key brings up a keyboard.  This happens in every application.  Is this
documented anywhere?

Long Press on Options Key - v 2.1

It has certainly been discussed. I would not expect to find that in
developer documentation necessarily, since it's a user feature, not a
class or method or programming utility. So, for example, it is
documented in a card that accompanies the Nexus One.

Long Press on Options Key - v 2.1

Devices without physical keyboards probably need *some* way to bring up the
virtual keyboard at any time like one would by flipping out a physical one.
This would be needed to execute application shortcuts, or initiate a global
search if there was not dedicated button, for example. Long pressing on the
options key is as good a way to do this as any.

Long Press on Options Key - v 2.1

 My Samsung Glaxy has no keyboard and I use this feature to filter in lists.
For example, in the Contacts list.

2. are there functions available to control VPN ? (create profile, connect to, ... )

Hi,

are there functions available to control VPN (create profile, connect to,
.... ) ?
For now I haven't found any functions for that.

I don't have a rooted Nexus One. I also don't want that for the moment.
Are there official functions available for that or will they be made
available within the next months ?

Thanks,
Nils
