I recently started using a Blackberry 9320 recently and prior to that I was using two Samsung devices. One was the Samsung Galaxy Note and the other was a Samsung Ch@t C3222 which is a dual SIM QWERTY feature phone.
The Galaxy Note was my main device until I got the Ch@t C3222 device from my sister. It also has a physical keyboard and it took a long time before I could get accustomed to it. About a week later I got the Blackberry device which I have been using as my primary Smartphone and using it has been a bitter sweet experience.
I love the always on connectivity but coming from a history of using full touch screen devices, my thumbs hurt – a lot. I am composing this post on my Blackberry device and my thumbs hurt with each keystroke that I type.
Adjusting to real physical keys have been very difficult for me. If you currently use a device with a physical keyboard how is that going for you? Do your thumbs hurt like mine anytime you have to hammer out some text?
