According to this topic on stack overflow, this is defined by the application. The app must request the keyboard to be displayed when the cursor is on the field. They say that, in small screen devices, the keyboard occupy lots of space, covering important views. So it's better to not display the keyboard by default, and let the developer implement if he wants to display it.
