    Verizon Android physical keyboard phones

    Why are there only 2? For those of us who are not Motorola fans, this is very frustrating. What's worse, the HTC Merge seems to still be in limbo. Anyone know of future releases or an equivalent to the EVO Shift 4G planned for Verizon?

    to be quite honest your not going to see much come to verizon as far as a powerful phone with a keyboard as the masses dont want it.

    there are some low end android phones scheduled to come out with a keyboard for verizon.

    Just doesn't make much sense when Verizon is the leading Android carrier and Sprint has a better selection of qwerty phones. Is there any talk of an updated version of the LG Ally coming out soon?

    So business phones with a physical keyboard are not a good business? Hummm, so it seems that there is a tendency in the world to not write anymore... just simply play touching a screen. Thats were we are heading for. The touch screen culture!

    The problems is more people are ending up in positions like myself, than those who continue to want a physical keyboard.

    I thought I wanted/needed a physical keyboard. First I got the LG Ally, but due to it not getting a software update I returned it and got the Droid 2. I have had it ever since.

    One day the search button on the keyboard stuck and everything I was doing would pop up various other apps when I was trying to send a txt, etc... Well, I didn't want to deal with it so I started using the onscreen keyboard and swype.

    After about 2 weeks, I figured out the problem, but I rarely use the keyboard anymore. I honestly regret not just getting a Droid X instead now.

    I know of other people in the same boat.

    i would never consider any android phone as a business phone at the least. The D2 Global did an okay job but still a long way away from being considered a business phone.

    So you consider candybar phones the only business phones? Why not android being an OS for business? It lags a lot? You constantly loose phone calls because it crashes when ringing?

    I used to swear id only have a physical KB, then I tried swype on a 4.3" screen and changed my tune real quick.

    Touch screen keyboards blow... They need more physical qwerty phones.

    Swype is neat, but I like to just type how I talk sometimes and swype doesn't pick up on that. Also, I find myself making WAY too many typos when using the regular on-screen keyboard, and if I have auto correct on it just makes me sound odd...
