Help before buying
I am looking at buying the 9360. I have read lots and lots of reviews about it, but just have a few more questions that I need answers to please!
1 - Daft question, but how easy is the predictive text to use? I am going from a touchscreen to buttons again, so want to make sure it is easy to make the switch!
2 - I have heard that the internet takes ages to load web pages. Is this so? If so, how much of a problem do you find it?
3 - I am also getting a playbook, which I will be tethering with the 9360. Will the playbook internet therefore be slow when running through the 9360?
Thanks in advance

1. Won't need it. But it isn't difficult.
2. Not really much of a problem. I sometimes use Opera Mini for Bigger pages.
3. It will be as fast as your data connection is. (Unless the data connection is faster than Bluetooth in which case it will be as fast as bluetooth)

I have had both touch and keyboard and i still like the keyboard this device has a 800 MHZ processor which is not bad.. i always use Opera anyway its fast enough for me.
cant really answer your last question re tethering but i can tell you the battery will drain very fast.
Still a nice device for the price in most markets.Paul Atherton

I haven't seen any significant power drain while bridging with my PB.
If you are getting less than eight hours of power from your 9360, you need to have someone look at it. I leave 3G on, WiFi (turns on automatically when I am near a WiFi point, and loose my network connection. Bluetooth is always on. I get more than eight hours, I have never gotten more than 9.5 though. Extra battery does help.Cuius testiculos habes, habeas cardia et cerebellum...
