Hyped up nonsense...
Can anyone tell me why a keyboard is a necessity for an Android device?
I mean seriously the entire OS and its attendant apps are all predicated on touch screen interaction, not a PKB.
And all this talk of the keyboard being a trackpad is just the same trackball nonsense the company used in earlier devices.
Bottom line is that this phone is of appeal mainly to QWERTY diehards and no doubt it'll sell to that crowd but to the rest, no much chance of a success at all. It'll flop.
