Android Question

Can I reposition and/or split android keyboard?

I am writing a custom android IME, and would like the keyboard on the side of the display rather than the bottom (actually, I want the user to have options). If possible, I would like to split the keyboard into 2 or more parts, located around the display edges.

I have reviewed various complicated solutions which may need extensive cross-device testing.

Is there a simple (and reliable) way to do this, with say, XML layout? I know Java, but not much about android layout.

Answer

Removed in protest because there is no other way to protest.
