  1. One possibility is to find a small bluetooth keyboard that can fit inside normal phone case. Then you could just buy 2pcs of cases and put phone and keyboard to own cases. In the end you could build the sliding mechanism with magnets (see Jolla the other half keyboard) or something else. Here is video and couple pictures if the idea. https://youtu.be/FqYX0ZbC5uA?si=itPnKwmK2GAorypX I think that another Rii keyboard could be usefull (‎4.3 x 2.3 x 0.4 inches so 10,9 x 5,8 x 1,0 cm) https://www.amazon.com/Rii-Bluetooth-Rechargeable-Handhelds-PS3-BLACK/dp/B0B46F8RS6
  2. I had similar approach many years ago when I bought iPhone 6 bluetooth case for Xiaomi Mi4c. I had to make some modifications for the case but it was quite ok. See more below. It seems that you wre still able to buy those cases: https://www.boxwave.com/apple-iphone-6-cases-and-covers/keyboard-buddy-apple-iphone-6-case/bwpdd/pkz-pkgw/ https://community.fxtec.com/topic/2127-i-built-my-own-keyboard-phone-here039s-what-i-learned/?tab=comments#comment-33164 BTW have you guys seen https://www.clicks.tech/? New Blackberry style keyboard case for iPhone.
  3. Nah, mine was better years ago but good try anyway. However, F(x)tec Pro1 is the best! Qwerty Keyboard Slider [DIY] Pics: https://m.imgur.com/a/Pbvpo
  4. Microsoft Remote Desktop app is often called as a "RD Client". Maybe @kashif is meaning that app?
  5. F(x)tec Pro1 is very soon becoming to a reality so let's take a look of those rejected/concept QWERTY sliders that you were dreaming about in the past. 1. Nokia N950 N950 actually became to a reality but not as a consumer product which the reason it hurts so much. It would have been great successor for the mighty N900 2. Motorola Droid 5 Droid 5 was in development during 2013 but it was abandoned before public release. Probably it would have had the same specs than the other Droid series phones on that year (Mini, Ultra and Max). 3. Nokia "Lauta" An
  6. @ravelo I decided to answer in this thread so we will stay in topic. Pictures: https://imgur.com/a/Pbvpo The keyboard of my DIY QWERTY Android phone was decent but not particularly great. The build-quality felt cheap but the response of typing was surprisingly good. I think that was okay for 20 bucks. The buttons did swing little bit. If I compare the typing experience to Droid 4 I would say it was much worse but acceptable. For me the biggest issue was the missing fifth number row but I managed to solve it with software tweak. I used Minuum Keyboard with Mini Mode for an extra ro
  7. The weight was mentioned at Twitter recently: It is 241g https://mobile.twitter.com/thefxtec/status/1187336672800845825
  8. I still have two Droid 4 phones but I do not use them anymore as a daily driver. The other one is running Lineage OS 14.1 and second one Sailfish OS. I also made my own DIY QWERTY smartphone (Xiaomi Mi 4C and iPhone bluetooth case).

  10. I had a DIY QWERTY phone in the past. The length of the device was 138.1 mm. It was made of iPhone 6 bluetooth keyboard case and Xiaomi Mi 4C. I think that 140 mm was very close to max that I was able to handle comfortable. But I need to test Pro1 before I can make my final judgment. Here is a short video of my DIY QWERTY phone.
