QWERTY

I recently bought a Blackberry Curve 8900 for myself. One of its many wonderful features is a QWERTY keypad. It's my first time to own a mobile phone with this kind of keypad so it took me a few days to get used to it.

After being used to the multi-tap keypad of Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones, my first day with the BlackBerry was full of misspelled words and other mishaps. Aside from tapping on the keys multiple times, the small buttons also made me key in a different letter than the one I intended to.  But gradually, I got the hang of it and I now enjoy using it.

After only a month of using it, I have become an advocate of the QWERTY keypad on mobile phones.  It is so cool because I don't need to wait for the key to be available to enter the next letter.   Anybody familiar with the arrangement of the letters on the keyboard will not have any problems with it.  In fact, I am now thinking of changing my other phone to one that has a QWERTY keypad.  Maybe not a BlackBerry considering how pricey this little thingamajig can be but that Bold 9700 looks so tempting. Hmmmmm.....
