    Hi,

    I have two questions.

    1) On which blackberry model one can type the fastest?
    2) And can an experienced blackberry user type faster on a physical keyboard than on a virtual keyboard?

    Thanks.

    Are you calling someone out to a showdown?

    My main advantage of having any BlackBerry with a physical keyboard is that I don't have to look down while I type (or, rather, concentrate on the words on the screen rather than my fingers).

    Give me any BlackBerry with a pkb (and I've had a few), after I get used to it, I'm greased lightning.

    You can certainly type faster on a virtual keyboard.

    But accuracy and pleasure have to be taken into account too.

    I answered a similar question last year.
    I can go pretty quickly on my Key2, but we used to billet Junior A hockey players (17 - 21 years old).
    These guys live on their phones and they can easily out-type me on a VKB. They again, they're young, vigorous and co-ordinated.

    Yeah, you know, for a Colonial living in the Remote Wastelands of the Great White North, I'm pretty good with my words.

    In terms of the hockey players, which I presume was the target of @conite , I never tried to read any of their messages, so I don't know if they were coherent or not.

    Install a typing speed test app and find out.

    My fastest Key2 speed is around 60 wpm with an accuracy in the 90's without any auto correct.

    BB's virtual keyboard on BB10 does a far better job of text prediction and is very fluid, so on that I can type very quickly also.

    However only on the physical keyboard can I type accurately without needing to stare at the keyboard, or even the phone for that matter.
