Yeah, the keyboard question is interesting. I, too, went from 7280 to 7100g. I can now type faster on the 7100g than I ever could on the 7280, because there are less keys and so I don't move my thumbs as often, or as far, on the smaller 7100g keyboard (e.g., often times, as many as 3-4 keystrokes on a full keyboard are accomplished by hitting the same key repeatedly 3-4 times on the 7100g).
It sounds crazy at first, but since you've used a 7100g for a while, you may know what I mean.
