There's a new shareware application that will display a full-screen thumboard in lieu of the standard system keyboard on your T3. Considering how the T3 screen is expandable, this should be a pretty comfortable option. Thumboard is compatible with all Palm OS applications which use a standard text field. It also provides visual and audio feedback for every key press, along with automatic repetition and "hold" for the keys that use it most frequently (such as backspace, delete, directional pad). The keyboard can be accessed or hidden with just a hardware button press. You can download Thumboard here. The shareware application costs $14.95 USD to register and includes free updates for a year.

The new BlackBerry 7100t (a.k.a. "Charm") looks more like a traditional phone than its older model, with a new 20-character keyboard: a combination of a telephone keypad and the traditional QWERTY keyboard layout. It will be available for $199.99 exclusively through T-Mobile USA. The design shows that most of the keys have more than one letter. To compensate for this, the device includes predictive software to guess which words the user is typing. RIM hopes to draw in a new market with this newly designed model, but insists that it's still a "BlackBerry."
