A BlackBerry parts manufacturer, TrueSupplier, are offering a full QWERTY keypad for the upcoming, unreleased Pearl 9100. If this is true, it means three possibilities: RIM will offer the Pearl 9100 in both QWERTY and SureType, only one will be chosen over the other, or the whole thing is a hoax and the 9100 is never getting QWERTY.
So let’s put aside the idea that this is a hoax because it’s more fun to speculate on the possibility of it being real. If RIM were to offer the 9100 with a QWERTY keypad, will the keys even be large enough to be functional. By the looks of the picture, the keys are incredibly tight. Personally, I couldn’t use something that small but I’m sure there are people out there who would like a small keyboard.
What about yourself, does this look like something you could like?
