    With the unexpected, and to some disappointing design of the Motorola droid pro, what type of keyboard do you prefer: vertical keyboard, horizontal keyboard like the droid and droid 2, or no keyboard like the incredible or the droid x?

    Personally i prefer the horizontal because of the convenience of typing fast without making mistakes because i am six foot four and have huge hands so it makes it easier. And i have the entire screen that i wouldn't with a phone that has no physical keyboard. And with a vertical keyboard for me presents the same problem as having no keyboard.

    So with the several devices expected and the others rumored coming soon, do you want them to have a physical keyboard, and if so, vertical or horizontal?

    i like the horizontal but it would be pretty awsome if they made a droid that slid both ways

    That does sound like a good concept to please and appeal to a wider audience. But how could the physical keyboard be the same to fit both sides?

    I bought a D2 thinking I'd want the slide-out keyboard. Turns out, after installing Swype, I only use it to compose long mail messages and type in forums. It makes a world of difference then, but I think I could probably adapt to using swype or another advanced on-screen keyboard just as quickly. If I want to type a letter I should probably do it on my desktop anyway.

    Tried the site and for some reason they said my area was unavailable, got any specs or other websitws to check this out. Keep in mind that i have become a Motorola addict in recent months.

    Sorry i just went to the website and that is not what i had in mind at all for a device. For me the Aesthetics are horrible on that phone. I want progression like the speculated pictures from nvidia for the superphone.
