Device: Motorola Droid 2(Android 2.3)

Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to
2. Change to the Desktop version.
3. After the keyboard comes up, double tap on one of the articles in view to read it.

Expected results:
Double tap should dismiss the keyboard as the user is trying to read an article and is not interested in entering any data in the text field.

Actual results:
The article is focused but the keyboard remains up. The user needs to specifically tap outside of the field to dismiss the keyboard.

The issue is not reproducible on the Android Browser. Double tap zoom out does not dismiss the keyboard( when the field is focused the view is zoomed on the field) but any double tap zoom in action dismisses the keyboard.
What does stock do?

On the Android Browser double tap zoom out does not dismiss the keyboard(when the field is focused the view is zoomed on the field so double tap zooms out) but any double tap zoom in action dismisses the keyboard.

For me, the stock Android browser does not dismiss the virtual keyboard when double tapping on another area on the page.
Tested on the Samsung Galaxy SII, so I can't reproduce what you are seeing with the stock browser.
looks like the cursor focus is still in the search box when double tapping.  VKB will appear as long as cursor is in textbox focus, so wondering if this is just by bad design.

nom'ing for triage team to discuss if this is expected behavior or not.

The behavior on the Android Browser is not really consistent when zooming out ( I am seeing the VKB being dismissed sometimes or not being dismissed other times) but when zooming in on an article I am always seeing the VKB being dismissed. Tested on Motorola Droid 2(Android 2.3) and HTC Desire (Android 2.2). Please see the video for the Android Browser behavior.
