    Motorola can't rest on their laurels forever. In my experience, we have a Note 2, two Samsung S3's, a Rezound, and a Razr Maxx and out of the 4 model phones, the Razr Maxx has the weakest radio reception. It drops down from 4G to 3G much quicker than the rest, and regains 4G much later than the rest.

    You know physical keyboards are going out of style when BlackBerry is putting out a virtual-keyboard phone:

    The Storm, which was released in 2008, was the first Blackberry that only had a touchscreen. The Torch had a touchscreen, but it also had a sliding physical keyboard. But the Torch was released in 2011, well after the Storm was released.

    I owned a tour storm 2 and a friend had the NON slider touch there was a version of the torch without a keyboard.

    Oh yeah, there was one without a physical keyboard. The major version that was more widely available had that portrait sliding qwerty though.

    Yup I liked that one honestly, except they rejoiced the today screen from the os and I had anyway switched to Android. Pretty sad blackberry

    Good point about the Z10 not being BlackBerry's all-time first phone without a physical keyboard (whether embedded or slide-out).

    As far as I can tell from both my previous observations and the other posts here, BlackBerry's brand has focused on physical keyboards, especially the embedded kind. Indeed, the Motorola Pro (with its embedded keyboard - and also its cool business uses) was Android's way of knocking out BlackBerry.

    So if BlackBerry is moving a virtual-keyboard model to the forefront now that it's on the ropes, that looks to me like a very good sign most smartphone users prefer virtual keyboards.

    What do you think?

    I've been using Swype the last 3 years so I'm fine with touch screens. If it wasn't for Swype I'd prefer a physical keyboard like the slide out one I had on my Motorola Droid.

    As for discontinuing these phones, lol, they throw out a new one every 4 months. All of our current phones will be "outdated" in less than a year. Too many "new" phones. They should slow their roll.
