I have the 8703e on VZW now and have nver used the smaller form factor.
Any insight would be great. If not I may have to wait another year for VZW to release the CUrve (whenever that might be)
It's actually easier to go to SureType from full QWERTY. If you were coming from a standard 12345678 keypad, there'd be a longer learning curve. Personally I doubt it'll take more than 45min of use to adjust. I'm not a BlackBerry fanboy, but I do believe that the Pearl is the easiest pretty
Smartphone to type with on the go. IMHO, the other BlackBerry's aren't pretty, and the iPhone requires two hands to type with effectively, and even then it isn't nearly as efficient as even SureType. Palms are ugly or bulky, and the Moto Q & Samsung Blackjack lack BlackBerry level power, and imho, the Pearl is still prettier
