    Seeing the ShopCrackberry sale on Z30s, I'm interested...mostly because of the potential of the larger sized keyboard. I know the screen is different, speakers much better, and much longer battery life. All sound fine go me. I'm most interested in the Z30 having a larger keyboard and larger window for text messages. Anyone having both Z10 and Z30 who post a screen shot of the two in comparison? Or some place where I can get something like that?

    I can't post ss because I no longer have my Z10, but the keyboard is bigger for sure.

    How about the text message composition box?

    I had the Z10 since February 2013 and just switched to the Z30. The keyboard is about 20 - 25% bigger and in my humble opinion much easier to type on. All the text entry boxes are correspondingly larger and thus easier to use.

    It's bigger, more comfortable to type on. I am sure you will love the Z30s keyboard coming over from the Z10. I have never ever typed as fast on any (physical AND touch ) keyboard than on the Z30s.

    Just the info I wanted...I agree with the keyboard speed. I still love the Blackberry physical keyboard on my former Bold. But was much impressed with the Z10. Sounds like I'll like the Z30 even more.

    Yup... z30 keyboard is much better than type on because it seems less cramped...
    though I don't have really big thumbs.. I'm truly enjoying typing on the z30 more.. but had bo complaints with the z10 too..
    Although battery life is wayy better and this beast lasts atleast 18-20 hours of my use...while the humble z10 lasted like 12-14 hrs!

    The Z30 keyboard is much better. I have big thumbs and make far fewer mistakes, even with the predictive text and swiping etc. So typing is quicker and more accurate.

    Besides the bigger keyboard, I like that I do not have to zoom out to see my emails on the Z30 like I sometimes need to on the Z10. Not to mention that I rarely feel the need to zoom in on web pages on the Z30.

    Follow up here a few weeks later...yes,this z30keyboard and screen size is excellent. Much better for my larger hands and fingers to type. I'm faster on this than I was on the z10 by far. And coming up to the speed I was on my Bold. The corrective text makes a big difference in speed too.

    I have both the Z10 and the Z30...
    Both are great machines, but because the screen size of the Z30 - you get a bigger keyboard.

    I have used both. Ofcourse Z30 is much better to hold, keypad typing but weight is issue. Sometime it is a pinch when it is kept in pocket. Z10 size is optimal for weight and one hand operation. I felt Z10 very convenient to hold in hand. If its battery would have not been issue, I would have preferred Z10. More so, in India, STL-1 is sold and this model has inherently whole lot of issues. I am with Z30 by compulsion. If I get STL-2,3,4, I would go for it.
