Looks like they were hearing us after all
My biggest complaint with smartphone manufacturers is that they were sticking either to the Blackberry form factor (QWERTY but no touchscreen) or the iPhone form factor (big-ass touchscreen, but no QWERTY). Other than the Palm Pre, most phones were one or the other, except for Nokia. But BlackBerry had not taken this route ... it seems thaqt if has finally dawned on them that some of us want both features. Alas, they have listened!
