Using the keyboard on phones with a 'long' form factor like the Xperia 10 can be quite uncomfortable. This patch moves the entire keyboard higher up on the screen to make it easier accessible without having to lose grip.

Credits: I am only the packager of this patch. The idea was raised here by JacekJagosz where Edz provided the first patch. It was further improved by kuba77 and rdomschk. Screenshots were provided by theyosh.

Hmm, could that extra bottom area be used for something. =)

Don't know what was improved by rdomschk but I improved Edz's first patch to its current form (except brackets).
