We reported a few weeks ago that BlackBerry Connect was coming to the Motorola MPx220 via Vodafone in South Africa. At the time, however, we didn’t think about experience of sending email from a wireless device with a standard cell phone style numeric keyboard. I have been a supporter of SureType technology found on the 710x series BlackBerry devices if you primarily read email and don’t compose a lot of long emails. I also think that trying to respond on a numeric keyboard, even for short messages, would absolutely suck.

If anyone has experience sending emial from a numeric keyboard, please, feel free to leave a comment and let us know if it is better than what I think it is.
