    I know, I know, I'm a Neanderthal. And I've tried. I really have. I'm using an Evo slab right now. And I just can't deal with the virtual keyboard. I need a physical keyboard.

    Any word on whether HTC will put out a front-line slide-out? Or if anyone will in the next 6 months?

    I haven't heard of any personally and I really do doubt it, all seems like a step back to the stone age ( ha!). If you absolutely can't live without a physical keyboard why not get one of those bluetooth ones that integrate with a case?

    The only one I've heard about is maybe the facebook phone which would be made by HTC. Its a shame, they made really awesome sliders back in the day.

    Anyone remember this gem?

    -____-. No. Its time to move on, hardly any tech company makes flagship phones with physical keyboards anymore. I just don't understand whats the big deal, yeah physical keyboards like in the blackberry bold series felt good to use but that is in the past. we are in 2013 and everyone is used to to virtual keyboards. They are not selling, if they made one they would sell like 50 devices for the last people on earth who are still clinging on to physical keyboard phones.

    I think the physical keyboard can be a nice touch on the right design. I don't feel they're totally obsolete. I often times find myself missing my Bold 9700 keyboard. But. Yeah, no. You probably won't find one in newer & upcoming devices.

    No problem, I know there were plenty of bluetooth keyboard cases made for iphones and for some of the top android phones previously. It should do the trick.
