Missing cursor keys in Windows 8 Tablet

Cursor keys have also been banished from the soft keyboard of Windows 8 tablet. It may be the first time Microsoft has removed the cursor keys from their soft keyboard.

The soft keyboard part, of the Windows 7 Tablet Input Panel definitely has the cursor keys.

Why is it so inappropriate to have cursor keys in a Touch tablet when it is often impossible to using the finger to move the cursor by one character? Remember because of the font uses, each character is not of the same width and I challenge anyone to move the cursor between two dots with precision.

It is crazy. I am so glad that there is a good practical solution for my Android Tablet.
