i would think that a button on the main interface that one could tap to bring up 
the virtual keyboard would be the way to go... then tap that same button to hide 
the virtual keyboard again... that's likely what i would do if i were in your 
position... that also based on what little i've interfaced with the two 
(so-called) smartphones i've ever held for any length of time ;)
