    Motorola Shadow: Would you prefer this keyboard?

    Motorola Shadow is Nexus Two with sliding QWERTY keyboard? -- Engadget

    I know this is a mockup, but it just bares so much obvious resemblance to the Droid, I was wondering if you would prefer the D-Pad to be buried in the right side of the keyboard like that?

    You know, I got the Droid for the fact that is has a physical keyboard, but I've found out that I never use it. Could be the fact that the keyboard is so flat that it makes it really hard to use (coming from a Blackberry Curve), but I have found that I have become accustomed to using the on-screen keyboard and I really like it.

    When I played with the phone in the store, I thought the physical was cool and virtual sucked. But in practice the opposite is true. Virtual is so much faster. But it is still good for games.

    If you also notice, the screen slides more than just half way like the current Droid, this enables them to have a larger (front to back) keyboard. And intigrating the D-pad gives more key width. Overall this gives a much larger keyboard which will also be more user friendly. At first glance a smart design .

    I must be among a small minority of users who likes the Droid keyboard. It's not the greatest, but it more than gets the job done. That version (assuming the final product resembles the render) gives me bigger keys, and more usable d-pad. I think it is a very well built phone.
