For those of you who have used both series, have you found it harder to type as quickly and/or accurately on the 8700? Any other issues I should consider in deciding whether or not to upgrade? I've lurked on this forum for quite some time, and this is my first post. Lots of very helpful information. Thanks in advance to everyone. SMR
It took me about 2 months before I typed just as fast on the 8700 as I did on my old 7280 (325 keypresses per minute -- 65 words per minute). Yeah, I thumb-touchtype
on my BlackBerry.
Within the first week, I was already typing almost as fast but my error rate was astronomically high (lots of typos).
