Strange Keyboard Issue
Just started to have a strange keyboard issue start.
I am using the stock Android Keyboard and whenever I click on anywhere to type anything the keyboard pops up fine but no keyboard input works. I can click on any key but no text is generated and the blinking cursor doesn't move.
A reboot solves the problem for a while but not for long.
This has only started happening since the last 3.2.1 update but am not sure it's connected.
Anyone else having this happen or have any thoughts.
I should also add that I have cleaned the screen well so a dirty screen is not the cause.

Try downloading any of the free keyboards from the market.
(Actually, I recommend just buying Swiftkey because its totally awesome).
It could just be that the keyboard language pack has a problem (corrupted), and selecting any other
keyboard might fix it. I
SwiftKey installed and seems to be working great -thanks.
Acer Support's fix was a factory reset which I didn't want to do and lose the installed apps and the work in setting it up the way I want.
You can also try to to to Settings -> Manage applications -> All, look for "Android Keyboard" (or the one you use) and then click on "Clear data". It will affect only the keyboard, nothing else.
Kyros MID1024 8GB (1024n board - development)
Iconia Tab A500 16GB
My keyboard was going wild in portrait mode, but clearing the data fixed the problem. Thanks a lot!
