What's your favourite HW keyboard phone?

Recommended Posts

I definitely prefer the keyboard of this little thing:

(HP Veer)

The second-best IMO is the BB Priv keyboard due to its touch-functionality.

Good. I need to do that ASAP if I'm going to use it as anything other than a slab for playing media. I'm back on my D4 now, and what a relief. LOL. I can hardly wait for the D5....er, P1 ;)

Motorola Droid 4. I really really wanted the Droid 5 rumored. And then there was the Moto Mod QWERTY...

I'm actually rather glad now they didn't make the mod because the Moto Z3 and Z4 were terrible subpar and the lack of a Force device just showed Moto has fallen.

The Droid 5 is coming......from F(x)tec. :P They picked up the mantle and made the next Droid. Sorry Motorola...you missed the opportunity.

...or even Nokia (N900 -> N950 -> ...)

Been meaning to do this for a while... Really only one good HW keyboard phone I've had (1st pic)...

And I used it to take the 2nd pic. - the set-up I'm using now 😉

Prior to my N97 (not mini), it was an N82; & before that the N3250 (my 1st 'smart' phone, WiFi, etc). Once the browser got too limited on the N97 (😪) I've been stuck with 'slabs'.  But at least the BT KB (2nd pic) makes my Lumia 950 much easier to use...

There CLEARLY is N900 influence in the Pro1. It's like the N900 and the Droid 4 had a baby, and the Pro1 appeared. :)

That Droid 4 was seeing an E7 or N950 when N900 wasn't home...

First thing I did. Complaining about a feature you can just turn off is weird and kind of unfair.

If I remember right, the turning off was something added - and there were a backside of turning it off too - frankly forgot what it was though. But was enough so that I kept it On, despite all the nuisance.

Also the setup doesn't ask if you'd like to disable it, so you're left with it unless you happen to wonder if it can be disabled, and dig through the settings. Nothing weird here except BlackBerry LOL. I don't hate BlackBerry, but I do feel that making the keyboard a trackpad was a weird idea.
