playbook keyboard suggestion - why can't we have the blackberry layout?!?!?!?

suggestion to rim...

...can we please have the standard blackberry keyboard layout - ie with the alt & sym keys - on the playbook please, pretty please!!!!! best if you can make this a user selectable option.

that will make just one thing to learn - ie getting used to type more spread out & on glass - while i don't need to learn a new keyboard layout. moreover, i can get to every special character on the blackberry keyboard in 2 keys instead of often 3 keys PLUS extra keys to get the keyboard switched back to something else.

thanks.

i would add to that request, Please provide a Blackberry Keyboard mode.  When i hold down a key a little longer, Capitalize it for me.  when i hit the spacebar twice, automatically insert a period and capitalize the next word. maybe this all works with Blackberry Bridge, but my company has it blocked.
