    Seems I'm part of a disappearing species - I prefer horizontal QWERTY phones...am I weird? :blink:

    Simply feels like it, because there are no new ones out there...almost everyone uses touchscreen-only-phones, a lot of them not even horizontal/virtual keyboard/thumbs, but in "one finger stab mode" : looks to me like evolution gone backwards.

    Anyway, I find Droid2Global a really impression, solid phone, though quite old now.

    Not much posts in the Droid2 section for a while; is there someone sharing (or opposing) my thoughts or excitement for it? :)

    when we first got android phones at work, everyone was used to Blackberries. We made a decision to bring in androids with sliding keyboards to help with tactile familiarity... within the first year everyone had converted to using the touch screen keyboards.

    an endangered species indeed! lol

    :) thanks for finding this; makes me feel less weird :)

    PS: apart from what I wrote above, that the virtual keyboard CAN be used horizontal, the minority of "the public" does it: most people on the street I see type on their devices holding it with on hand, typing one-fingered with the other...makes me chuckle every time :D

    Who says people are moving to touch screen phones, and forgetting the work horses?
    Here's my stallion, still running!

    I still love the sturdy feel of the D2-A955.
