You keep your finger pressed down with out lifting, then slide to the one you want to choose and then lift up to insert that character.
(Ok now it's time to play with holding down keys) that is just too cool!
I just realized the numbers are above the qwerty row and are activated with a long press and slide. 1236780. Of course the symbols are automatically available for selection between words. Just look above the keyboard, where the auto complete line is.
