They could produce a phone, which has the ability to get some kind of different, well integrated, covers... some would get the keyboard and others maybe the gamepad thing or whatever...
    I've never seen that, but love the idea. I went on to Crackberry.com to see what BB might have in store, but they only seem to want the portrait sliders like the Dell Venue Pro. I don't like those. Heck, maybe I'll go back to feature phones and cancel my data plan. I will not part with my keyboard!!!!

    It's amazing what people can dream up, but making it real is another story. What kind of people have the spare time to create these mock-UPS anyway? I'm jealous...

    still plenty of older people who need this. I can get my grandfather on Windows Phone, if they will just make a real keyboard.

    Unless you count phones from 5 years ago as new, no.

    I don't see why people just don't get used to touch screens. I've used slide-out keyboards before but it's so much slower in comparison, especially with Shape Writing on 8.1 now.

    The Dell Venue Pro was probably my favorite phone. If Dell decided to get back in the smartphone game and released a phone with a similar design I'd be all over it. That vertical qwerty was a serious eye catcher. Everytime I used it on the train people would stare, and I got asked "what phone is that" all the time.
