    Do you use your thumbs or fingers to type on the PlayBook?
    Right now I use my fingers but trying to figure out how to use only my thumbs.

    I use both. I like typing on the pb.

    I hope they experimented with making the keyboard even better for OS2

    I use a stylus ... love it and while I can't do the 120 wpm that I can on my desktop keyboard, I'm pretty fast!

    About 90% thumbs and 10% fingers. Most of the time I am holding it with both hands (like now) and type with my thumbs, occassionally I will lay it in my lap and use a few fingers.

    Thumbs seems to be more efficient for me (especially for taking notes), in both landscape/portrait.

    Well, I'm going to force myself to use only my thumbs as I'm doing right now. It takes a little longer but with practice..........
    Thanks everybody.

    I'm a finger man. I can't type with my thumbs on the playbook just my phone.

    Mostly thumbs, sometimes fingers. Since most do use their thumbs (non scientific findings) I wish they would come out with a spilt keyboard. As much as I like using my thumbs the center row (t,y,g,h,v,b) can slow me down. Why not have a version of the keyboard that splits and compresses to the sides? I have seen it on the Windows tablet demos's, would be great for those Blackberry long time thumbers...

    Thumbs when holding, fingers when on a surface.

    Stylus for me too! Keeps the smudges to a minimum.

    I use a Targus stylus ... about $14 in Canada. There is a stylus/pen combo that sells for about $12 in Canada. There's also a Rocketfish stylus that sells for $20 Canadian. I haven't figured out why it's more expensive but I may give it a try since the paint has worn off right through the metal of my Targus, just where I hold it. I must have too much acid in my skin or something!
