On some Android compatible devices, the home button appears directly underneath the virtual keyboard space key. This causes a problem with data entry for some users because the home button may be activated inadvertently as the user tries to type a space and the application that was receiving the typed data to become closed during data entry as a result of activation of the home button.

Additionally, some keyboard users may have a natural tendency to aim to place their thumb or forefinger at the bottom centre of the virtual keyboard ready to type a space, because this is what they would do on a real keyboard.
