    Are the keys on a Pre going to be rubberized like they are on a Centro?

    Thanks, Justin

    Yes, check out Precentral, there is a close up there.

    As reported by someone over at the Sprint Users forum: i played with the pre - SprintUsers.com


    also the keys are a little to close together for me, since im a 755 user the keys are spread out more but on the pre they are closer together. the keys are gel type so when you push on the button it feels nice and your finger wont slip

    My biggest fear about the Pre is the quality of the keyboard. I have to admit, I hate the keyboard on the centro. I hope its vastly superior.

    Centro keybd is easy to type on, but if you have large fingers it could be an issue. Pre keybd looks like keys are larger and spread out alittle more as compared to Centro.

    It is not just larger then centro, it is also curved a bit. The keys are also said to be more 'sticky' so it should be easy and comfortable to type on.

    The current Pre keys are almost exactly like the Pro keys in size, configuration, feel, and mechanics

    If you want to know your closest comparison is not the cetnro, it is the Pro, which has a much much nicer keyboard than the centro -- in fact the best keyboard of any Palm I have used and I have fat fingers myself.

    Try the Pro to get the closest idea to the pre keyboard.

    Thanks, I will give that I try. I am so used to a soft-keyboard now.

    Same.

    I really like the hard buttons on the 755p and 800w.

    I like he rubberized keys on my Centro, they're grippier. I'm hoping the keys on the Pre are the same.

    Rubberized but better spacing then the Centro, would be idea!

    I prefer hard buttons that are not slippery.. that way you get best feedback wether or not you fully pressed a button or not..

    rubbery keys can feel a bit 'vague' in that sense..

    id hope there would be predictive texting also..

    If there is predictive I hope it can be disabled.. I prefer to have auto correct so I can type shortcut words, i.e. ur = your, wel = we'll, etc. And I hope I can edit the database of words. I use PowerDict by Dmitry of palmpowerups and love it.

    T9 or auto correct with an extensive dictionary, ether/or will work great for me...
