They talk about it all the time, well the ones with long nails. Anyways, they can still type on a touchscreen, they just have to adjust their typing style.Cuius testiculos habes, habeas cardia et cerebellum...

This is a huge marketing opportunity for RIM if their new CMO can pounce quickly and effectively.Why is it that when your contract commitment is up, the phone you always wanted is now old and the phone you now want won't be out until the next quarter?

In my experience, women who use a touchscreen phone for the first time just never had it explained to them that it's a capacitive screen. All their prior experiences have been with resistive screens. They were accustomed to the tap sound their nails made, and liked the sound as it substituted haptic feedback with auditory. Once they understand how capacitive devices work, it's not hard for them to adjust to.
I know numerous women with long nails who use touchscreen phones with no trouble at all. They're typing as fast, if not faster, than any man I know.

Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital. \

In the video they weren't talking about finger nails.
The genius on the right said women typically have colder hands compared to men...she said the iPhone screen is heat sensitive, so women, with colder hands, will find it harder to type
The iPhone screen isn't heat sensitive, it's capacitive touch technology
You can test this by using a grape on the iPhone screen

Try telling women to cut their nails? Tell them they are doing it wrong when they are touching the screen just like we are? Type with a grape? I have news for you guys, it ain't gonna happen! Not everyone is obsessed with their phone, especially Women.
RIM, RIMM, or whatever we are calling it today, needs to have a 9900ish phone or Google and Apple will eat them up. And its not just the Women either. What is the most popular model right now?? One of the models with a full touch screen or one with a hobbled keypad and portrait screen? F NO! Its the 99XX.

As a woman with long nails most of the time (I shorten them when I travel} it's not the nails that bother me. i can type by adjusting how I hit the keys. I believe it's what the woman on the right said, that the fingers are colder.
Right now my nails are short and I have the same problem, I simply am a terrible typist on touchscreen. There may be something to the colder fingertips theory.Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy, and good with ketchup
Isn't it amusing how people who claim to not enjoy CB at all simply can't stay away???? It's because it's CRACKBERRY, the BEST BB site....

Fiorina on Facebook and RIMM Stumble - CNBC
Go to about 4:20 to 4:30 on the video when they start talking about RIM. Carly Fiorina confesses that she loves her BlackBerry Bold and then go to 6:30 or so....

I have no sympathy for these women who suggest this. It's absurd to think you should be able to type with nails. I even hack of my nails so I can type quicker on the keyboard. If they want to keep those nails then bend the thumbs more so the thumb actually touches the screen. Geez, it's not rocket science.

Caller: My name is Alice and I'm having a hard time typing on my iphone.
Tech: Hi, Alice. I'm Mark. We've seen this problem before and have a solution. The problem isn't our perfect phone. It's that your body was built wrong. We have a list of recommended plastic surgeons in your area who can fix you so you operate correctly with the perfect iPhone. It involves fingernail removal and joint realignment. Would you like me to email you the list of iDoctors?
Caller: [Hangs Up]
