Unfortunately there is no way to do this other than tapping outside of the search box. I will file a bug for this feature if there isn't one already.

[update] I found a bug. Looks like this is on its way, although I can't say when it will be available.

Yes, I've noticed this too. If I hit Enter when searching the keyboard gets stuck on, and won't go away even if I tap elsewhere on the page. If I tap the search icon then it goes away as it should.

make the keyboard a bit transparent would be nice too since it hides some suggestions.
