    Do any 8700g have hard 7200 style keypads like some 8700c's?

    Advertisement



    I've noticed after checking out many of my friends 8700c bb that many or some of them have harder more tactile feeling keypads like the old 7200 series.why aren't there any keypads like this offered for the 8700g? Or are they anyone out there that knows what I'm talking about please let me know...I have pretty big hand and typing on the 7200 series was awesome.but the keys on my 8700g are too small and slide around this is really hard on my fingers and just darn hurts.I did notice that many 8700cs have a hard more tigfht feel to them.and after testing this type of keypad is also a lot better on my fingers after long hours of chatting on yahoo aol google talk and msn messngers on my bb as well as writting and responding to a bizillion emails and sms messages not to mention my buddies here from the forum pinstack BB Messenger...so has anyone seen or felt a 8700g with hard tight keypad? I really love the color of the tmo 8700g over the cingular 8700c but the pain on my fingers is really making me consider a 8700c or maybe a Rogers 8700r in black if there's have the hard tight keypad as well and trade mine for it.maybe just sell it on ebay...

    I've found the 8700c keys to be much easier to type on than the 8700c. The 8700c and 8700r will improve what you describe above. However, will not be as thumb friendly as the 7200 BB's.

    Hands down the 7290 still is king in the dept.

    A lot of the g's definitely have keyboard issues. I'm not sure if RIM is addressing this or not.

    Yeah the keys on my 8700g are tight sometimes I make a mistake and hit the letter next to the key I'm trying to type and I don't have large hands, I can imagine men with large hands it's gotta be a pain!

    I bought my 8700g yesterday. This is my first bb. I do notice the floating of the keyboard that I have heard so much about. But I have nothing to compare it to.
