Yes, it only takes a short while to learn the keyboard. I have grown to love the small form qwerty over the years to a small obsession . Watch a seasoned BB user and you'll notice they rarely look @ the keyboard. The only time I felt uncomfortable with my BB was with the 7100i and I eventally got over that. just look @ all the phones that attempt to mimic BB innovative keyboard design.
I've always been able to do this on any BlackBerry I have owned, including the 8120-little bit harder than my 9900 to type on ;-) but the 9900's keyboard is so nice to type on, I could type an essay on it in half the time I could on a computer because I am so used to the keyboard and I have only had the phone since Wednesday!
Hahaha, I love doing this.. I sometimes look to see what I've done(: some of my friends who have had blackberry's as their phone for ages can type anything, any length and get it 100% right most of the time! Good also for texting in class, can be very sly haha
