    BlackBerry Storm SureType only?!

    Advertisement



    Not sure how true or accurate this is, this info is 100% third party. I was talking with a Verizon store manager who was told by a BlackBerry rep that the BlackBerry Storm is going to be SureType only.

    If there is anyone out there that can confirm or deny this that would be sweet.

    If this turns out to be true that is going to change my mind about picking up this phone. Honestly I have no qualms about SureType. I'm pretty handy with a Pearl. But I switched to a Curve for the keyboard. Seriously sole reason. The reason I have a problem with this particular phone being SureType only is because in demos it was shown to have both QWERTY and SureType. So if you have a preference or one is just easier for something you wouldn't be forced to deal with it. .

    sounds very unlikely,but that is just my opinion.i might think,suretype in portrait and qwerty in landscape.that would be cool for it to switch when you rotate the device.

    That was my thinking. And I have seen video of the phone doing this. So I wonder why they would remove this feature.

    I also saw the video and read something about it online. I just think RIM's trying to please everybody those who are used to querty and suretype. I agree to both being operational

    Question I have would be if RIM is going to give an option of either a suretype or a qwerty keyboard for portrait view.

    I understand that it has qwerty in landscape mode and suretype in portrait view; Though my thought or hope is that the option will be given to the user which keyboard type to use in portrait view, either qwerty or suretype.
