i was just going to mention the samsung double flips. Those are small yet have a full qwerty keybrd.
If i am to consider buying a BB again, it would need to be smaller and lighter. I know the Pearl is smaller, but compared to most of the phone in north america its a big one. I know you can't really compare BB to a normal phone, but thats what most people will tend to do.
