Default can SureType be used on non-pearl BBs?

I'd be interested to try it out if it could work on a regular BB.

Thanks.

SureType is only for the Reduced size keyboards.

I figured that was the answer. Just thought I'd ask.

Why would you want to use suretype on a full keyboard device? Suretype is not predictive text; it predicts which letter (of the two on the key) you want, but you still actually have to press the key. In other words, you have to type the same number of letters as you would with a full keyboard.

I was reading in a couple threads about how it learns terms and such and though it would be interesting to try out.
