I have a lot of friends got a sliding phone and most of them complained that only 1 year broke this sliding keypad. That's why they avoid a phone with sliding keypad. So i never try it to avoid wasting money.

I am glad they are making QWERTY phone, but it is yet another phone which will not be available in the UK.

There is not a SINGLE phone company, which offers a QWERTY Android phone.

It would be nice if the product managers of LG, HTC, Motorola, Sony etc.. can explain their decision.

I really wish they would make more phones with QWERTY boards.
I owned a HTC Desire Z, with a qwerty board and it was amazing.

I just got a nexus 5, love it

While diminished, there is still a role for having physical keyboard for smart phones. Some even buy accessory cases that have a small keyboard built in.

Typing on a mechanical keyboard with raised keys, affording all the tactile feedback that goes with this, really is a superior user experience.

If not for its added weight and bulk, I believe more smart phones would have this feature.

While I enjoy my Samsung Galaxy Note 2, I wouldn't mind having a keyboard option.

So hang on. I've been waiting all this time for a qwerty and yet again it's a US only? Or did I read this wrong?
