Obviously, the problem with the 7130 keyboard is Suretype. The 8700, the keys are stiff and spaced too close together.
If you don't mind the suretype, I would stick with the 7130.
I agree. I made just as many mistakes using the 8700 as SureType. I since switched to the 7130e from the 8700 and couldnt be happier. EVDO tethered modem rocks.
I do wish Verizon would release firmware upgrades.
