Do you love your new Apple iPhone 5 but wish that it had a slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard to make text messages and Facebook status updates that much easier? This case could be the perfect fit.more →
Designed by SoloMatrix, the Spike case is a protective case for the iPhone, except it comes with a clever bonus. The bottom half contains a QWERTY keyboard that can swing out to the front when you need itmore →
As I mentioned in my post last week, it’s still a little murky as to whether the team in Waterloo will opt for a Torch-like slider form or a Bold-like bar phone for the keyboard-touting BB10 device, but it’s just as likely that they could go in both directionsmore →
This is it. This just might be the last major attempt for Research in Motion to become relevant and competitive in the smartphone market. The first BlackBerry 10 device will reportedly be unveiled around the middle of August, followed by a launch some time in the first half of October.more →
Naturally, the Xperia Pro is geared toward a slightly different kind of customer than the Xperia Play. Instead of slide-out gaming controls, it gets a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.more →
Whatever the case, the Sony Ericsson txt pro handles most of the basic smartphone-like usage needs, like social networking by way of the unique Friends application.more →
You’ve got to do something to separate yourself from the crowd. When everyone else is doing “slate” style Android phones (LG has its Optimus phones in that line too), you want to do something different. And this new LG sliding dual-screen Android phone is definitely different.more →
The Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro is a little different. Even though it is largely sold as a “feature phone” rather than a smartphone, it has real smartphone brains under the hood with its Symbian S60 5th edition operating system. Does this make it a really good value for people who want web connectivity and smartphone-like functionality at a “dumbphone”-like price point? You’ll soon find out.more →
Maybe you’re digging the higher speeds afforded by Sprint’s WiMAX network. Maybe you want to get ino on the action with a QWERTY-equipped smartphone and the Samsung Epic 4G isn’t exactly your cup of tea. If that’s the case, it looks like you’ll soon be in luck with the HTC EVO Shift 4G.more →
Research in Motion is really starting to dabble into other “unconventional” form factors for the BlackBerry line. The Storm was the first touchscreen. The Torch the first slider. And the Style could be the first QWERTY flip phone.more →
The iPad isn’t a netbook, but it’s really starting to bite into some of those netbook sales. With the recent FCC approval of the KeyCase iPad Folio, we could see even more of a push in this area. That’s because this particular iPad case happens to pack a QWERTY-flavored punch.more →
I’m still partial to having a true smartphone these days, but there are many other people who are more interested in cheaper messaging phones with full QWERTY keyboards. If that sounds like you, Boost Mobile has you covered with the Samsung Rant.
If you’re thinking that this phone looks a lot like the Samsung Gravity, you’re not alone. The form factor was unique a few years back, but several other messaging phones have started to take on this style (like the LG Rumor).more →
You’ve got to love some of the names that they come up with for these Samsung phones. From the Eternity to the Gravity, they all sound like they should be larger than life. Snapping us back down to the Earth is the aptly named Samsung Reality u820.
The Samsung u820 Reality isn’t a smartphone, but it could be called a feature phone or a quick messaging phone. Bound for the shelves of Verizon Wireless, the reality has a big three-inch display and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.more →
