Norwegian Characters Mod For Desire Z Keyboard
If like XDA forum member Novek, you’ve been searching for a Nordic keyboard for your Desire Z, then look no further.
Fed up with long pressing on his keyboard, the forum member searched high and low on the world wide web but couldn’t find anyone who cared to program the special characters for Nordic keyboards – such as æ,ø and å. The only place where they currently exist is on the stock Norwegian ROM, but if you are a frequent visitor to XDA, then you’ll know that custom ROMs offer a lot more.

For more information and to download the mod, head on over to the forum thread.
