    Absolutely YES. My wife and I use our phones for our businesses and need to use them to create and edit actual content. We use the Microsoft Office Apps. We miss the Worlds Best physical keyboard on our HTC TouchPro2. We know that games, entertainment and socializing don't understand.

    I would love that concept that it is full touch, but when you are typing, physical keys would pop up.

    That is a really cool idea.

    Yes. We've been begging on the forums since 2011 to no avail. I've almost given up hope. I'm set with my Quantum until at least WP8 GDR2 comes out. WP8 as it is now is not really an upgrade to WP7.8 in my opinion.

    Yes! I still miss my Tilt. Or at least I used to have a bluetooth physical keyboard made by Freedom that connected with my Windows Mobile phones and allowed me to use them like a laptop. I miss those days.

    HTC 8 Pro or a qwerty slider Lumia would be perfect

    Yes. Exactly what I want. I have work to do and a virtual keyboard does not cut it. My Blackberry Torch worked better than my iPhone partly because it had a physical keyboard. I want Windows 8 because I am going Windows all the way: Enterprise software, phone, tablet/laptop. I am tired of a lack of integration in products. Like I said, I have work to do. And, after trying the alternatives for 8 months, this solution is what I feel is the best for me.

    I want a Dell Venue Pro like device with Windows Phone 8. Portrait sliders are my favorite style of hardware.

    The closest thing you will get to no touch (more like less touch) in this day in age would be the Q10. If you desperately need a physical keyboard, just get that.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a wp8 on the market with a hardware keyboard, because it would be nice to know I had that option. But predictive text makes this keyboard more than bearable.

    And that's a big statement coming from me. Before windows phone I wouldn't even think of buying a fully touch phone, regardless of specs.

    I agree, that's probably why so many people bought the HP Pre3 in america

    Hell yeah! I love my 7 Pro and would really like to get a WP8 device. But without a qwerty keyboard I just cant work... So give me a nice thin and surface-design like HTC 8 Pro and I am happy as hell :)

    In today's climate, thin is in. To have a thin phone with a physical kb, you'll lose screen size. Throw in a slider of any kind and you get a thick phone. The Dell was a wonderful device with a beautiful screen and a superb kb, but it had some shortcomings. Those of us old enough to remember Palm Treos are probably the ones who miss keyboards more than anybody else. With the new-found love affair with the stylus, we can only hope that keyboards make a comeback as well.

    We need Apple to invent the stylus, and the physical (actual) keyboard (like they did windows (Zerox), the tablet, and the up coming watch), then we can have a physical keyboard.

    I agree. It broke my heart to give up my HTC TouchPro2 keyboard. Windows phones are for work and need larger screens and slideout keyboards with dedicated number keys.
