New Crackberry sort-of solves the texting problem

RiM's designers simply added an extra column of keys on either side of the traditional 12-button pad. Then they laid out the alphabet in traditional QWERTY format and allocated two letters per key—a single button has the letters A and S, or J and K. Like phones that use T9, the 7100t has to guess what word you're typing. But since the 7100t only has two letters per key, it has a much better chance of guessing an unusual word.

(If this was 1999, I would insert a RiMming joke here; but it's not, so I won't)
