I have a 7130 in addition to my 8700.The keys must be very tiny if it is a full QWERTY layout. Looking at my 7130 I cannot see how anyone could possibly type on it without Suretype.
It is not Qwerty. It will be a SureType device. The sahpe of the keys is waht makes it unique and user-friendly. I will say this though-the rumored "trackball" in the old center key position is actually more like a very small four-way directional key. Seems like this would be difficult for navigation.

Cant see it being that awkward considering most other phones use a 4 way nav in this way. Just be something a lil different to get used to for now. Just hope they make a better agreement with some of there software providers to get more things available in time for its release.
Ok well...just found the rumored 8100 device, should have it in a day or two, and there will be 100's of pictures posted by myself. See RIM this is what happens when you don't include me in your device beta program and make me sign an NDA, don't you love journalists?
