    I use my Playbook everyday and I really like it, but there are two things I don't like. 1) I can't stand this keyboard. Mostly the space bar just never seems to register. Trying to add a space is miserable. I know they aren't in vouge but I would love to have a touch pad. Trying to add a space by screwing around with the floating curser sucks! It reminds me of Storm 2.

    And why cant I make default type a readable size. I have to use a magnifying glass to see this. So Lord knows what this rant actually says. I know I've had tokess around with the darn floating cursed enough to almostgive up on this post. In fact the hay with it. By the way "tokess" is not word except when your playbook takes over your typing.

    Maybe you need glasses? The space bar issue I partially agree with, but it's not as bad as you suggest.

    The glasses are new enough I just have to be more articulate. What I find frustrating is editing text whether it be a missing space or whatever with this floating curser. Trying to get that where you want it requires moving it less than 1/16" with your fingers and then it floats around. RIM fixed this with the 9850 by adding a track pad. But the know it all reviewers said the track pad was a useless feature. I think it was a great improvement over the Storm 2's curser. And I wish it would be added to a new playbook. And this space bar is horrible. I can type much better on my 9850.

    Editing text is quite easy in most apps where you can enter text. All you have to do is zoom in before making a selection. Then accurately placing the cursor or moving it around is a piece of cake.

    I have a bluetooth keyboard in my case (for each of my playbooks) but I also use my Blackberry 9780 as a mouse/keyboard.

    You can purchase a BlackBerry Bluetooth Keyboard that may help. As for changing the size of the font, put your two fingers in the Centre of the screen and then spread them apart. You can also go in the other direction, pinch them together to make things smaller.

    And I thought the topic was going to say "I like my playbook but...I'm slowly falling in love with it!". Then I was going to jump in and say "I'm falling in love too!!!"

    I agree, the larger, the easier the CURSED is to handle.
