When the keyboard opens the app window is resized to make space for the keyboard UI, instead of leaving the window unchanged and overlaying the keyboard. This is a risky solution:

- Can often make apps/sites unusable by vertically squashing content together.
- Could activate height based @media queries only while the keyboard is open.
- Would trigger a window 'resize' event that could result in unwanted callbacks being run, this could impact performance or visually change the UI.

I am quite passionate about this problem as I spent months battling against the same thing on Blackberry Playbook at the FT. We had to introduce all sorts of hacks to work around it.

Perhaps these issues are already on someone's radar, but I just wanted to flag it up to make sure. IMO the OS should try to interfere as little as possible with the app's domain.
