BlackBerry PlayBook JavaScript Keyboard Events Bug

On all desktop browsers that I’ve tested (as well as iOS and Android) events are fired for each keystroke. This is useful if you wish to perform a task as a user types input, for example autocompletion hinting. On the PlayBook however, the event is only fired when a space key is entered and a word is completed. This seems to be the case for keydownkeyup &keypress events on OS2, I can’t confirm whether this is new in OS2 or if its always been the case.
