    All this 4G technology -- and no physical QWERTY keyboards???

    Not trying to spark a huge argument here -- but I am legitimately curious as to why...

    So -- maybe I'm just behind the times on requiring a physical QWERTY keyboard, but whats the deal with Verizon not having ANY cell phones with 4g technology and a physical QWERTY keyboard? Am I the only one who religiously uses the physical keyboard?

    I'd love to have 4G, but the physical QWERTY keyboard is a /must/ in my line of work (IT professional and regular Linux geek).

    the issue is that your part of such a small percentage of people that want them its not very beneficial to the manufacturers to continue to put them out.

    Not the only one, but you're a small minority. Options are coming though...
    I have CDO. It's like OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.

    Well I'm not a geek! And I love having a keyboard!! I need a stinking keyboard!! Hold up I'm on this forum so maybe I am slowly turning into a geek. OMFG!! All jokes aside though I love having the keyboard for my messaging needs. I'm real good with swype. Actually I love using swype. Use it more than swiftkey. But for my long messages I find that for me the physical keyboard is quicker and I make less mistakes. But it definitely seems like manufacturers see physical keyboards as being on the way out. Presently I have a droid 3. The D3 with 4g woulda been the shiznit!!!

    Samsung Stratosphere. The leaked info from RadioShack is showing it to be coming out tomorrow. 4G and keyboard. Granted, a mid-tier phone, but if those two are your primary factors, your wish is granted.
