I'll have to correct myself. I looked again at the Japanese 'skin' on POSE;
and, the hardware buttons are the same. The difference is in the silkscreened
buttons. In addition to the standard 4 silkscreened buttons (launcher, menu,
find, calculator), there are an additional 4 silkscreened buttons. They have
Japanese characters on them; so, I don't know what they do. I supposed they
have something to do with shifting for double-byte character support. Due to
these additional silkscreened buttons, the graffiti input area is smaller;
although, it is still split in 2 parts (alpha and numeric).
