HTC 7 PRO had an amazing keyboard and slide-out mechanism. It was really something of good quality that I am going to actually miss. Sad news HTC... really sad.
a passing by meteor, 20 Apr 2012so nokia is copying huh? Haha! Right.. Your the Man! (that knows nothing)Yes they copied BB design G-slate buttonless style and Google by naming their OS edition with names instead of numbers s60 and and and
KF, 20 Apr 2012check 5510....You need spectacles because that's completely different design 5510 has full QWERTY and its horizontal not like BB it's mini and square nothing like 5510 design!
Nokia fanboys you really live in denial
Why? Txting on touchscreen is so slow. I love qwerty phones. I hope Nokia will make apollo version of e7. All the android qwerty phones are getting old in Norway. I will buy ics or wp8 qwerty right when something like that comes here.
So bad decission. My DezireZ is the best qwerty phone how i ever have!. HTC [*] R.I.P [*]. By the way someone try make phone qwerty which will look no bad and ill buy it :)
I'm still using my (heavily outdated) HTC Dream/G1, the very first Android phone ever, simply because it has an amazing hardware QWERTY keyboard. I've searched far and wide for quite a long time now, and have not yet come across ANY other phone that would come even close to that. Clearly as far as HTC goes I won't need to search any more - if I'm ever going to find a successor to my aging phone, I'll have to search elsewhere. Very sad.
[deleted post]You do realize that we can all see your ip Mask address at the bottom right? We know you double posted.
On topic, they should've kept making them for the market that still wants keyboards but I guess they weren't profitable enough anymore to HTC.
I'm inbetween on this.
wtf nothing can compare accuracy and speed of hardware qwerty i have xperia pro and i love expecially when creating documents and web browsing it also enables full size experience of various apps and games htc has taken a wrong decision

Why Nokia fanboys consistently lie?
E61 released in 10/2005 http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_e61-1322.php
While the first mini qwert was by BlackBerry 6230 in 6/2003 http://www.gsmarena.com/blackberry_6230-1007.php
And Nokia known in their copying other models and designs
Another stupid decision from HTC!!! but that is there way now not mine.
i have always hate qwerty keyboards of blackberry and nokia e61,71,72. never like.big touch screen or simple classic keyboard of bar mobiles. blackberry style is waste of space and it was a big mistery its success because nokia e61 was in 2004-2005 the first mobile with this type of keyboard
Its probably more to do with the fact that they launched under specced handsets eg desire Z 800 Mhz processor, Cha Cha, screen was too small and too low res. Both of these handsets lost there focus due to being launched along side more powerful handsets.
Good for them
QWERTY is useless you can't use it in games only texting and can't add other languages only English unless they come for specific region.
If they can make integration with games and label some buttons for games control to be like a gamepad and add simple way to put other languages and comes with other languages stickers will be perfect
I have htc desire z and it is the best fone I have ever used. Its hardware keyboard is the best in the market by far. I was hoping that soon htc will relese new android phone with keybord (htc one Z) but now it seems that these dreams have ended. I guess I will have to get used to typing my txts and email on screen :(
