    Physical Keyboards

    Do you think that physical keyboards will ever come back into style? Or is it from now on a predominately touch-screen market within the foreseeable future? I think something in between would have a good shot, but not currently. Maybe in a couple of years. What do you think?

    One of my favorite phones because of its physical features was a slider phone that had a full keyboard. It made texting very easy and so much fun. I would really like to see the keyboard somehow be integrated functionally with a nice size touch screen. Maybe they'll come up with something like that in the near future.

    It's funny someone else just posted a note in the Droid4 Forums about how heavy his phone was because it has the physical keyboard and all. I think many people would like one but they're just too bulky.

    Well, if the Droid series continues a physical keyboard with the Droid 5, they will still be out there. From the Droid 1 they've all had physical keyboards and I think they're a top seller.

    I used to have a Motorola Hint before I upgraded to an Android smartphone. It was also one of the sliders that would pop out a full keyboard. I loved that phone. But the screen would have been way to small for a touchscreen.

    Yeah the Droid 4 has a nice big ole' keyboard and a 4 inch screen. But again, the weight of the thing is going to get to you. It's like a brick I tell ya, a brick!

    That's something to keep in mind. I didn't even know the Droid4 had a physical keyboard because I hadn't looked into it before. That's making me want to go phone shopping. I guess it would be just one of those things you would have to handle yourself to see if it works for your lifestyle or not.
