    Just went and checked this phone out at Verizon. Regardless of some of the shortcomings that people feel this phone have. (camera etc) The keyboard is just excellent Reviews are not embellishing. It was a pleasure to type on.

    The KB is amazingly smooth and buttery. Its the only thing I love about this phone.

    But, other basic functionality is 1000x more important.

    7100, 8703, storm, storm2, 9630, droid, incredible, droid x, fascinate, droid pro, incredible2, thunderbolt, iphone4, droid3....and now the 9930. In my opinion this is the smoothest running phone of them all. Everything on it works perfectly for me.

    Now when I get an email, I no longer have to think twice before typing my reply on the BlackBerry or heading to my PC and type it. It is a joy to type on and makes our lives easier!

    +2 for the keyboard and the bigger screen and the super fast speed!

    This BB is on steroids no doubt!!!!

    While I do feel that the keyboard was absolutely amazing, I returned my 9930 and went back to a WP7 phone. I love the hardware, but the OS is not competitive for my needs considering I've had Android, iOS, and WP7 phones in the past. I won't write RIM off yet as I do intend to check out the QNX based phones when they are released.

    Tony,
    This is why, for 2 years, people like myself and many others here at cberry kept relentlessly begging RIM to refresh the 9000. And I'll tell you something else, I believe, no...I know for a fact that the 9900's KB is larger than the 9000's. I have my otterbox defender from my old 9000 on this 9930 and the sides of the KB are slightly covered up. I love this phone, as I knew I would. I'm sure everyone else who haunted these forums for the last 2 years have the same feeling as I do with this phone.

    It is. According to RIM, the keyboard on the 9900 is 6% larger than the 9000. You could see for yourself by looking at the gaps between the keys on the 9000, and comparing it with the 9900. It's airtight.

    wow your posts are horrible, we get it, you said this already like 100times in other threads
    you only like the keyboard, we get it

    you think the touchscreen is a "joke"
    all you do is repeat yourself over and over again, without even giving an explanation
    do you even have a 9900/9930? somehow i doubt it

    This phone is perfect in my opinion. This is exactly what I've been waiting for. And the keyboard is better than I expected.

    Love this phone!
