    Shift key puzzle

    I am enjoying my second Prime very much (the first died after 24 hours) and have no WIFI GPS difficulties but am having problems when using the keyboard. For example shift key plus ' gives" instead of @. Most other keys have the same problem. Can anyone help?

    I just posted to say I have this very problem in one of the other threads (see below). I'm in the UK too. This is new under ICS. The keyboard was mapped correctly with Honeycomb.

    It is using a US English Mapping that is being used. I have not played with this in ICS but in HC you have to have the ASUS (UK) English keyboard selected in order to get the right mapping. Any other selection defaults to US layout.

    Thanks for the welcome. I have changed the language and keyboard settings to English (UK), and that appears as default but I still have the problem. Have I missed something?

    This may be an ICS bug of some sort. I have not played with it in ICS.

    Thanks, I will wait a while for a fix if it is a basic ICS problem as others must be suffering as well. There is no difficulty with the tablet on it's own.

    I have the same keyboard shift problem with ICS on an American keyboard. Strangely, I was able to get it working for a while when I re-booted, so maybe it is partially a sleep problem. Everything else seems to work on ICS (except the Economist app).

    If you select the correct input method (ASUS UK English keyboard, or the generic Android UK keyboard) the mappings all work correctly.
