Default Key to number: How to do on different keyboard layouts?

Please Login to Remove!

I would like to get all possible values on a pressed key as there are:
a number (on the keys that have a number)
a character (if a full layout is used) or two characters (if you have a reduced layout)

if i use keyDown on a 8110 (Reduced QW-ER-TY-OP keyboard layout) i only get the keycode for the first of the possible characters.
e.g. if i press "E R 1" (the key with E, R and 1 as values) i get the keycode for 'e' only.

If i take a look at the screen of the RIM phoneapplication a press on the "E R 1" key on a 8110 does the following:
- a '1' is entered into the number field
- an 'e' is entered into the 'find'-field
- a lookup for 'e' as well as for 'r' is done

Is there any way to avoid hardcoding character recognition for all 3-6 possible hardware layouts (depending on compatibility) ?
