Default The loss of QWERTY Keyboards

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a lot of people out there... who favor the new predictive text on the blackberries? It makes me a little sad that the new blackberries are... looking more like phones...

It frustrates me that RIM is going the direction of having two characters on each key... instead of... one character.

I purchased a blackberry 7250 mainly because of the qwerty keyboard. What's happening here?

nothing is happening. they have the 7100 models which have the hlaf sized keyboard or whatever you wantto call it. they are still realising full sized ones. and belive me the new one (8700) is just amazing. there is and 8700 disscusiion forum on here you can even see the pictures and its supposed to be out start of novemeber.

RIM is simply trying to broaden the appeal of the BB to more "phone-centric" customers. Not to worry, their core product remains the full qwerty devices.

Oh my god... so that's what those delicious looking new blackberries are! I saw that picture on someone's Avatar here... and was really wondering about what that was!

DAMN

I just got my 7250 recently... and can most definitely wait for that to come out... Sigh... too bad... too bad...

Predictive text is exactly why I didn't get a BB 7100 model. I also like the form factor of the non 7100 series.
