    I doubt it since it not only requires the parts, it requires the size as well. The keys will need to press the actual parts inside the blackberry so I don't see how this would be possible

    lol ... not the worst photoshop job ever

    IF the keyboard on the new bold is like the old one, then I do not see how a mod could work. Have you tried using your 8900 keypad?

    no it most likely wouldn't fit in the bezel the 9700 keyboard is bigger. my idea is defiantly feasible im going to send a message to vendors in china see if they can create it
