Couldn't care less about losing some screen to a keyboard.
Can't go with a Bold full time (which I still own) as it mangles the contacts whenever you add/modify them via the phone - a bug never likely to be resolved..
My Priv is too top-heavy. The keyboard just doesn't work well at all. End up using the touch-screen the majority of the time, which is the same disaster as every other touch screen. Don't kid yourself that prediction, swipe and all the other nonsense gets anywhere close to how quick you can type on a proper BB keyboard - and without even looking at it.
If this thing supports the only apps I need, which are pretty much reading the news, RDP and some CCTV systems then I'm laughing. I'll happily take the keyboard so the text/email I spend 90% of my time doing is trouble-free.
I know the majority love their touch-screens, but the majority also can't type either. Most occassions when I whinge about touch-screens to someone who loves them, they tell me they have NO problems typing on theirs. When invited to watch, I see them pissing about pressing 2 keys every 4 seconds. For proper typing, by someone who can type properly, the keyboard needs to be a physical one - end of.
