I still prefer a full qwerty keyboard but I used to have a 7130e & the form factor was better, especially when you have a phone stuck to the side of your face for any lengthy period of time. I wasnt all that thrilled by suretype at first but after about 3 weeks (I'm a SLOW learner!) I found that I could type about as fast as I could with qwerty. It all comes down to personal preference: If you do more typing (allot of typing) then I'd give a nod to full qwerty but if you spend more time on the phone & receive text messages that are not lengthy and or not receive all that many text messages in the first place, then My choice would be to go with suretype. I'ts nice that us bb users actually have a choice. Now, if RIM would just go back to building bb's that are built like a brick house, I would be VERY happy!
