Great! I'm looking to replace my Asher 201 and haven't been able to find one.
I am using a Nokia E6. I too am waiting for full Nokia smartphone(lumia) with QWERTY. Will wait till July, if they don't launch would shift to other QWERTY...maybe the new BB Q10..
I'm so mad at Nokia for not believing in that there is a serious market for full QWERTY smartphones. I've been waiting for a replacement for my Xperia Pro Mk16, but there seem to be no upgrade here in EU; US and Japanese market have alternatives, but not EU (which makes me even more angry).
I left Nokia because of the lack of a non-symbian qwerty-phone and went for Android. To hear that they were launching a full QWERTY device again got my heart-beat up, just to realize the disappointment when hearing it would not be a full LUMIA-smartphone.
Just because the world is full of hipsters that require design and "hipp" things over functionality (and because the companies seem only to listen to them) we loose something as essential as a physical keyboard.
BTW: Why is it that the companies are willing to make QWERTY-phones for US and Japanse market, but not for the rest of the world?
Best qwerty option this phone. But I note happy because i Waite best battery life minimum 2 day's working time give me so please relies qwerty best mobile for example nokia E6 but note in gorilla glass so Waite new best qwerty key pad smart business phone in rs.15000 please relies..
Ok how deseptate are NOKIA? Sending out this "teaser"... can anybody remember all this QWERTY symbian phones now on the graveyard? At least SAMSUNG has the insight to copy Apple. NOKIA Is just to proude to realize they got everhting wrong. Incl Win 8 mobile, which will be one of thier last biggest mistakes.
whats crap again from Nokia....always forcing me to go other brands...disappointed this time also.Take me on board shall tell Nokia what we are looking from Nokia
its a nokia asha 210, i already saw it on their facebook page, i was hoping its going to be a lumia 920 with a slide out qwerty keyboard. bummer.

Just wow... They've been doing physical keypads with proper tactile feedback that lasted for years during the sms-heavy era.
The Qwerty E71 was "Phone of the Year and the Best Smartphone at the 2008 Mobile Choice Consumer Awards"
Care to share how you came up with your opinion?
Tarun, 24 Apr 2013come with something to beat market...avoid usual stuff Please define un-"usual". A huge screen? A tiny screen? Non-touch? Resistive touch?
I'd rate a full Qwerty in a flagship device as unusual nowadays. Besides, make it too unusual and no ones going to buy it. Do a google search for "unusual nokias" to see what I mean.

I'd love this QWERTY phone to be a smartphone. It'd mean there was someone else besides BlackBerry taking business and corporate use seriously.

Yes it is. The E62, the e72 etc... Not to mention the original communicator, the various sliders (N95, N97, E7, N900, N950). In fact if there is one manufacturer who really knows how to make keyboard phones it is Nokia!
