Keyboard navigation was introduced on this MR: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~phablet-team/address-book-app/trunk/revision/113

You should be able to use TAB to navigation btw the fields.

SHIFT + TAB to go back.
SHIFT + "->/<-" To navigate on the field label, when it exists.

Reopened as this is not a solution on the phone, and does not work in number entry keypad layout.
The next key is I think the preferred solution

Adding ubuntu-keyboard as affected probject since we do not have this functionality on the keyboard yet.
