Re: Hyped up nonsense...
"Can anyone tell me why a keyboard is a necessity for an Android device?"
Entering lots of text.
You may be able to type lengthy paragraphs, with eloquence and style, on a phone touchscreen, but I for one find it laborious. I am not a die hard blackberry user. I left BB and went to android. My first smart phone was not a blackberry.
So these people exist. These people will buy the KeyOne. If it flops, then you can stand there and point and say a great big "See? SEE? I was right to ridicule it. "
It will be a good day for you.
