    Its not entirely true as we can thumb type with the ipad 2 in both hands - just it has to be held in portrait mode. Anyone else do this? Cause thumb typing is what i prefer.

    There is no response. The ipad is a 10 inch device and the playbook is a 7 inch device. So blackberry "wins" this round.

    My reponse to playbook owners would be something along the line of "glad you like your purchase".

    I would just tell them that I'm glad they found something that works for them. I love my Droid X, I'll love my iPad,

    Fix post removed quote col.bris

    Oh jesus, this thread is going to be closed. That kind of objectionable language got a thread closed yesterday, and he didn't even use the "p" word. He used the "u" word.

    So if I get drunk in England, I can't use their colloquial term to describe it?

    Sorry if that word is taboo here. I'll rephrase; I'm not going to get into a micturational distance contest over mobile technology.

    Well, my response would be "and this matters to me because?"

    I can thumb type well on my Playbook, but I can't type on it with my fingers because the screen is too small.

    I would say you poor chaps...size does matter, then I would place my iPad down carefully and type this post on iPF.

    Never could thumb type, never will. I can single hand type on the iPad faster than many of the kids around.
