    Has anyone ever noticed the the letter arraingement of the top row of buttons on there BB. All the way to the far left it spells Q-W-E-R-T-Y. It even does this on the pearl. I wonder if this is this was because of design or if it was totally unintentional.

    Yes, that is why it's called that. This was originally used to identify English typewriters from the French versions which are known as azerty.

    Hope this helps.
