For me I've used the 7100g, 8100, 8220, 8320, 8520, 8700g, 8820, 8900 and the 9000.

For me, the 9000 has a smoother feel and tactile response. The keys are not too small so I don't miss type.

That's my pick, the 9000.

Honestly, nothing will ever compare to my old 7290 for simplicity and ease of typing, especially for a guy like me, with big hands.

I like my 8520, but it's all I know.

Ahem! The 7290?! That's a very old model. You can find them on eBay for under thirty bucks easily. They make great gifts for kids who just text all the time.

Parents: if you have a snotty brat who wants the latest device and will only use it for texting, look for one of these older devices.

I think he only referred to the keyboard itself and not the overall features of the device
