That is interesting -- I decided to try this out with my new N810.  
Unfortunately the slide out keyboard doesn't have many keys to use, with no 
<alt> key.  I got <ctrl><shift>p to work but it requires pressing all three 
keys simultaneously, which is quite hard on the slide out keyboard.

I tried using the bluetooth keyboard settings to configure a more usable key 
setting.  Unfortunately, all the <ctrl>-letter keys I tried give "Function 
key reserved for the system".  It did accept <ctrl>-' but after I had OK'd 
out of the bluetooth keyboard dialogs the key did not work (pressing <ctrl>-' 
still did nothing).  Is there some other way to set up shortcuts for use with 
the slide-out keyboard?
