Specifying the type of the keyboard shown

Hi there,
we’re using ionic.keyboard plugin in our project, and it works nice, except that on Android 4.0.4 (Zopo ZP900S) it ignores the ‘type’ attribute on input fields. I mean, if an input has type=‘date’, focusing on this field calls standard keyboard with letters.
What I’m trying to figure out is that if it’s possible to bind to the ‘focus’ event and explicitly call the numeric keyboard or datepicker keyboard?

Hi. I’ve written a plugin to do just that on Android : https://github.com/46cl/cordova-android-focus-plugin/
