I'm glad , LG has invented this type of smartphone . I'm the user of xperia pro mk16i and I can't imagine using the smartphone with no keyboard . I hope there will be more qwerty keyboard smartphones and I think to design one as well ;)
Looks like a great device.
Just wish it would come outside the US.
At least LG have made a try, albeit not a very good one to meet the needs of those who WANT a keyboard.
So whats so horrible about this keyboard?
you need to say otherwise your comments mean nothing.
Trying to get a quart into a pint bottle never works.
OK if youve got midget hands like most f/e folk, no good at all for those with ~BIG hands.
LG arnt the only ones to ignore this sector of the market.
BB are just as bad, one small size is supposed to fit all.And I thought most Canuks were big people.
A hand set has to do what I want .If it dont, even if it was FREE I wouldnt have it!!
Do you follow?
Michael, 27 Jan 2014HERE WE GO AGAIN!: ---------------- ~The same horrible design of keyboard! ~Overpriced for... moreOK, show me where the LTE is on the Nokia 520/521. Or the camera flash. Or the hardware keyboard. And at 4 inches, typing on a software keyboard is going to be inaccurate anyway unless you have swype. Or the ability to swap out the virtual keyboard with another one from the app store. Does Windows Phone support that yet, or are they still playing catch up to 2009 Symbian?
HERE WE GO AGAIN!:
~The same horrible design of keyboard!
~Overpriced for a low resolution 4 inch screen, 1gb of RAM and dual core processor (Most of the same spec. phones don't cost more that $200 today, let alone Nokia 520 which is $80 now!)
Why can't LG make a keyboard design which is the same as window's phone virtual keyboard which is designed my Microsoft? Make square size keys and a normal layout so you can type fast and without constantly hitting a coma or period sign by mistake.
