BlackBerry Thunder keypad still needs work


BlackBerry Thunder

There have been reports of haptic feedback on the touchscreened BlackBerry Thunder, but development is still very early and not yet perfected. The unreleased device, rumoured to be available sometime this Winter on Verizon, will offer vibrations and clicks when typing on its virtual keypad, which will change from SureType to QWERTY depending on orientation. While that might be a nice consolation for a real keypad, word has it that the early betas aren’t going so smoothly. Regardless, there’s still a long time to go, and if it’s not ready for the rumoured release date, it will get “delayed” for when the Thunder is ready to roll.
