Description Serge Matveev (reporter) 2010-01-22 11:23:00 UTC
(Settings > General > About product)

If I start typing symbols on the hardware keyboard in the main view (fast
contact search), the first symbol always will be in english.

1. I have cyrillic layout switched on
2. Open hardvare keyboard
3. Press any letter several times

In the search field you can see first _english_ letter and the rest - cyrillic.
In the 'contacts' application fast search works fine, but not on the desktop.

The search must start in the current keyboard layout. 

The quick search is mostly unusable in the non latin keyboard languages.
Obviuos, in Russia I have moat of my contacts in russian.

Thanks for reporting this. I can confirm this.
Fix is on the way.

1. Settings > Text Input > Hardware keyboard layout = Русский
2. Save
3. Close Settings
4. Start Contact Search by entering a character using the hardware keyboard

It helps once. After some work time with my device this setting resets to
English layout back. Now I can't remember what activity I have done. But I have
to go to change this setting regulary.

"Settings > Text Input > Hardware keyboard layout = Русский" is always on for
me (and another russian users) by default, but it don't solve this problem. I
changed this to english and back to "русский", but still no effect. I use _all_
settings on my n900 as "русский" (because of Russia) - maybe this fact has

This bug persists since initial release of n900 firmare (pre PR 1.1) and I
don't know why nobody reported it already. This is 'well known' bug for the
russian n900 users :-(

I fully support the reporter. This is the major issue as it makes the whole
idea of contact lookup in Russian language not working. 

The first character that is looked up us always latin character, regardless of
the "hardware keyboard layout" setting and Ctrl+space switch. That is really
annoying as the user has to use backspace to delete this first latin character,
and then type it once more to get required Russian character.

Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).

Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).

This problem still actual in PR1.2!
First symbols in fast search are in English, other are in Russian...
Comment 11 Eric 2011-02-02 22:32:44 UTC
Same in 20.2010.36-2 :(
Didn't work correctly since I bought it with 1.2 software.
