I disagree. I have one and the keys require a pretty large amount of actuation force, or the domes are just degraded badly on mine.
I like the Jornada ones a lot better even if the keys are smaller.

Companies producing alternative computing devices. Exhibit 1: DEC and their Alpha. We had 64-bit computing when the slow companies were stuck in 8-bit. Guess who's still in business, those who stayed in the slow lane of technology.

seriously how do patents work.. do they expire or what because the sidekick flipping magic could not be bested. you'd think itd be fragile but the later models had refined it such that it would just swivel away from any kinda damage.

Oh man, those Sony Ericsson phones were god-tier, probably the most god-tier dumb phones....I had a W810i which wasnt even the best one they made. Bluetooth, IR, FULL SIZE Memory stick, 2Mpix Camera with dedicated button and autofocus. I flashed the Sony factory firmware on it, which got rid of the Cingular bloat and allowed you to even rice it a bit through Flash-lite Themes. Oh and it had a 1500mah battery, which when it was new would go for up to 2 fucking weeks depending on how much you talked. You had to actually try to kill the battery in less than week.
