SureType on Z10?
Can anyone that has been able to purchase a new Z10 confirm or deny if the new Z10 has the "SureType" reduced key keyboard? The only videos that I have seen show the full keyboard and I'm curious if it also has the SureType keyboard that is on the current line of Torches & was on my old Storm2.
Thanks njblackberry, but that is a disappointment. The Suretype is one of the reasons that I love the Torch. Sure, this isn't something that will keep me from buying the new Z10, but it would have been nice it that was an option like it was on the Torch and even as far back as the Storm2.

For one handed ease of typing, nothing beats suretype! I was amazingly fast with it on my Pearl 8110 and could even type entire conversations one handed without looking at the phone while driving. Having said that, I found it to be a bit of a disappointment on the touchscreens of the Torch 9800 and 9860. Just didn't feel the same as it did on the Pearl. Not to say it wasn't good on the touchscreen, just not a great as the physical suretype. But from everything I've seen so far on the Z10, its designed to be used one handed so not sure it would need suretype.Don't take Life so seriously, you'll never get out alive

IMHO the Zee/Zed 10 is narrow enough to allow for one handed typing.
Of course typing/texting/emailing while driving is frowned upon and illegal in some places ;-)Thorsten Heins: "We have a clear shot at being the No. 3 platform in the market" - 09/25/2012

I learned SureType on the old 8100 Pearl. Once I got used to it, it was great and fast. Used it for a long time on my 9800 Torch, but switched it over to the full keyboard a few months back just to get myself used to it, even though the keys sure are cramped. I would think that the Z10 is wide enough that would make SureType a bit less necessary.___________________

As long as it isn't Surepress you should rejoice. What a disaster that was.Who cares which device is better? Isn't all that matters is that it's the best one for you?

An app would be great. Otherwise you can vote for the SureType here. I did for the similar reasons you mentioned here.

I had the 8120, 8220, and 9100, I was absolutely In love with the keyboard! That said I have gotten used to the touchscreen keyboard of my z10 and it does work well with one handed texting. I still would love to see a pearl keyboard phone with bb10 though!

I still however kind of miss suretype but the Zed ten doesn't need one because of the keyboard it has.
