    Take a look at this Symbian smart phone

    Nifty looking keyboard, 3G and 80MB memory

    Doesn't look like there's a camera though

    Thats just a pure PDA! Who said they are dying. There is very little compromises in being a phone there. It seems in the phone/PDA battle, the worm is turning.

    It looks like they licensed RIM's TrueType keyboard: it's the QUERTY layout from the BlackBerry 7100 series. --Unless they both licensed it from a third party.

    If it's even lighter or slimmer than the 7100t as the blurb suggests, and it has a good radio and BB mail, the Symbian OS, assuming it's as rock-stable as the BB OS on this device, should make for a nice upgrade from the 7100.

    You may be right; I may be crazy. But, the Treo may be just the device I've been looking for.

    In my job I get emails from folks who are using those RIM devices with the keyboard like this one (they call it 'SureType', actually - not TrueType), and their emails always have massive typos in them, from the funky key layout. I call those 'SureTypos'.

    It will be like ' yes I can come to New Otbqauy tomorrow with you' - instead of New Orleans, or something similar. Funny.

    Very true, especially when first starting out. Remember that these devices are meant to attract people who have been using standard phones, and this SureType is far superior to T-9 or the like. But it's actually a very elegant piece of software that I learned to use so that about 70-80 percent of my messages type out accurately and efficiently. It is definitely a compromise approach and for 20-30 percent of my messages I do have to type carefully to avoid "SureTypos" and about 5-10 percent do go out with a typo or two. It has a very useful AutoText feature that has allowed me to set two-or three-letter codes for tricky words and its dictionary (for typing, not spell-checking) does learn often-used words pretty quickly. (BTW, I just tried typing out your example and the "yes" typed as "tea", but otherwise it typed out accurately. For this case, I would have had to backspace or add a stroke to get the "yes", thus adding about an extra second to get it right.)
