    Hello all. I'm Still sort of new to WP7 and would like to know if there are any windows phones (WP7 or any upcoming WP8 devices) that have a qwerty keyboard similar to the T-Mobile Dash.
    I got the Dash during the Sidekick era and was extremely pleased with the device- it didn't have many apps, but was extremely customizable and a joy to use. (Not sure why the customizable part has somewhat changed in the newer devices). And while I find that using my Lumia has been the best touch screen screw experience that I've ever had, I still wouldn't mind having a device with a pretty good keyboard. It would be a pleasure on my line of work.

    hey there ;)

    I am using the HTC 7 Pro (or "Arrive" if you buy it from Sprint in America) and just love it! I had a blackberry before and wanted to have a nice QWERTY-Phone after my BB broke... so I bought the 7 Pro and have to say: awesome!

    A Windows Phone with a physical keyboard is limited to just three devices. The Dell Venue Pro, LG Quantum and the HTC 7 Pro (Arrive). Of these, only the Dell has a portrait keyboard, the other two are side sliders.

    Thank you; that is what I wanted to know. I prefer the portrait keyboard to the sliders, but didn't want the Dell Pro. Wish Nokia would release a Lumia that was similarly designed to the old E71... What a dream.
    Thank you all.

    The Dell Venue Pro is about $150 on Ebay NEW (Just make sure it a T-mobile one)

    Then you can go to XDA-Developers and upgrade it to 7.8 so its just like having a Win8 phone.

    Love mine and have bought extras
