What QWERTY keyboard?

The sliding bit looks like a typical phone keypad to me.

My qwerty attachment is in the coat pocket.

Shame it's windows only

Shame, it looks like a nice phone, but as I want a phone that syncs with Mac/Windows and preferably linux and Samsung don't seem to care a lot, then it's not for a lot of people.

Thank the Gods

I love my F480 Tocco, so kind'a miffed this one came out so soon, but to be honest, the 'ultra' tag is a little enthusiastic. The phone style keypad is woeful (the onscreen keypad works fine), it really needed a slide out qwerty job.

In fact, the only complaints (so far), about my phone are:

1) no web view in widescreen mode - wtf? (tho the smart view is actually pretty good)

2) locked in screensaver

3) better text reading management (tho if you convert ebooks to html it seems to work the best - but again, no widescreen unless I'm missing something)

For the ultra to earn its tag it should've had a larger screen, slide out qwerty and reactive portrait/landscape mode like the iCrap and as previously mentioned, wifi.

Or the N97 when it's out. Slide-out qwerty keyboard, touchscreen, wifi, and *free* software from Nokia to do all your syncing etc.
