    So... how big is that tiny Qwerty on the 8300?

    Advertisement



    After using the tiny SureType 8100 keyboard (and I loved the 8100), I wanted to see if the slightly larger 8300 Qwerty might give my big fingers some typing relief.

    So, I made this actual size PDF of the 8300 for those of us that haven't been lucky enough to actually hold a 8300 in our hands. Print it out at 100% and it should give you a pretty good idea of how big the 8300 keyboard and key spacing are.

    Your print of the 8300 should measure 60mmx106mm (2.3"x4.2") when printed at 100%.

    Oh yeah... don't let me catch you cutting one of these out and using it at a dimly lit bar to pick up chicks!

    I don't have a working printer so what I did was open the PDF in Adobe and shrank the picture down to 100% from 464%. It's slightly wider than my Pearl (I laid the Pearl on my screen on top of the pic of the 8300).

    Looks great! It's funny, cause I kind of did the same thing. I measured it out and cut it out to get the visual on this phone.

    I think it's great size phone. It's not as thin as the Pearl or 8800, but it's just a tad thicker. It's shorter than the 8800, like the Pearl. I liked the 7100 size and it's going to be thinner and shorter than that. It's almost perfect.

    I just put my co-worker's Pearl next the the picture and we're talking a bit wider, but not much. It's basically the same length. It will be a tad wider, but not much. It pretty much comes down to pesonal preference. Qwerty or SureType? Black or Silver? The 8300 will have better specs though. Camera at 2mp compared to 1.3mp. Depending on the model, possibly WI-FI and or GPS.

    It looks great to me. I'm willing to give it a try.

    Wow, that's small. I did a print out and compared it to my 7105t. The 8300 is sightly wider. Looks like I'll be keeping my thumbnails a little on the long side.

    I'm very much looking forward to the 8300. The size looks perfect. I'm anxious to see what the features will end up being with T-Mobile.

    hard to excited about 8300 in my world, only because my work has sprint and sprint as I can see gets everything last... Im hoping that the rumored May 5 for the pearl is true... crossing my fingers...

    I can't believe we're this hyped about the phone.

    Printing out pdf for size comparisons????

    No, no ,no! We're talking about cutting up PDFs to P/U chicks in bars! Ha!

    After all, how crazy and obsessed are people that there is an entire forum (on multiple sites!) for a phone that's not even out yet?!

    Wow I just sank deeper into the ranks of degenerate Crackberry users and printed out a paper 8300 simulator of my own. I like.

    The question really is does size matter? It's not the size of the berry that matters but how you use it ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
