Keyboard APK With Numeric Row On A Sony Xperia Device

If you are an Android device user who has access to a Sony Xperia smartphone or device – either you have one yourself or you know someone else who has one, or a combination of both – you might have notice that the keyboard on a Xperia smartphone or device does not contain a numeric row.

This lack of an numeric row on the Sony Xperia’s line of smartphones and devices is nothing new, but it is something that is going to become a thing of the past.  The latest firmware update that Sony has been releasing for their Xperia line includes keyboard updates – including a numeric row for the keyboard of a Sony Xperia smartphone or device.

Sony had begun releasing updates to Android Lollipop 5.1.1 for their Sony Xperia line of smartphones and devices.  As is usual, the update to Android Lollipop 5.1.1 brings a few fixes and patches for issues and bugs and also includes improvements and updates to the operating systems and features.

One update with the update to Android Lollipop 5.1.1 for their Xperia devices is the addition of a numeric row on the keyboard app of Xperia smartphone’s and devices.

After installing the new update to Android Lollipop 5.1.1 on a Sony Xperia device, you will find that the keyboard now has the numeric row.  Aside from the numeric row, you get new language support.  You can find this new language support on the top of the keyboard

.The best thing about the keyboard updates is that they are not just accessible to
Sony Xperia users who have installed Lollipop on their devices, but it is also available to users of older device who are not included in the official updates.

Sony has uploaded a standalone installation package for their Keyboard application that includes the updates to the app that are part of the Android 5.1.1 update.  This means that you can get a keyboard with a numeric row and new language support without necessarily installing and running Android 5.1.1.

If you want to update your keyboard application even without updating to Android Lollipop, you can get the keyboard changes by downloading the Sony Xperia Keyboard APK installation package file via the Google Play Store and installing it on your device.
