    Looking at Youtube and seeing the curve 8330 is pretty small, is the keyboard to small for typing alot? Is the screen to small or can you see good on it?

    small is a relative term, if you have great big ham hands the nyeah it's gonna be too small. i think for most people don't have an issue typing, you will fat finger a key here and there but it shouldn't be a real problem. try going to the store and play with one to see for sure.

    Compared to the 8830, the keyboard on the 8330 is more spaced out. My only grief is the keys are somewhat harder to press.

    I'm a thin guy, so my fingers are thin.

    Tiny Pixie or Elf'ish hands would be perfect for actual typing, i think most of us are quite swift with the "2 thumbs of fury" typing style. i have medium sized man hands it works fine.

    Since you say you have thin fingers then it shouldn't be too small! And no one that has used mine has said that the keys were hard to type with so you should be fine!

    I don't find it that small at all. I once typed out half of my paper I had to do in one of my classes. Turned out to be 2 pages once I emailed it to myself and pasted it on word.

    Former Curve thumb typist here as well.

    The Curve's keyboard is great, IMO even better than the Tour's.

    I love the curves keyboard. Occasionally I will mistype but not very often. By the way I have fairly fat fingers. I have tried typing on the tour but prefer the curve.

    Small-medium fingers here and I do okay on my 8330 keyboard. It gets a bit ridiculous typing numbers and extended paragraphs but 99% of my emails can be done without a problem from the phone.

    I have a Curve 8330 and thick fingers, but the phone suits me well. I wish i had a Bold though as it would be easier to type on, but i can type relatively fast on my Curve.

    I've played aroun with my friend's Tour and the keyboard on it feels quite cramped. A wider kb would have been nice.

    Yeah I can pretty much 2nd all the comments, a good size qwerty keyboard, doesnt get annoying unless you're writing out an entire essay or something, but even then its pretty smooth and designed for easy movement.

    Not at all. I've made some rather large posts on FB using my BB. Occasionally, I'll hit another key since I'm typing fast, but it is quickly corrected..
