I can just picture handing one of these to an executive who's not tech savy ...
mark you make an excellent point .... if vzw and rim think that they will get wide acceptance by firms with the current keyboard they are in for a big surprise .... i think this will cost them tons and tons.
i dont care how much you know the keyboard layout - which i know very well btw and i also im/email while i ride it just doesnt make sense. i see this as if ford built a car with no labels on the dashboard or very poorly visible labels .... just plain stupid.
imagine having a keyboard that you cant really read ... but need to move your head around if you want to type a letter because you cant really see it -
i am just glad i am back on my 8703e
