The keyboard isn't great. The disappointment starts when you slide it open; there's no spring assist to snap it open and closed. The keys themselves are separate and raised from the surface, but their flat shape makes them surprisingly difficult to tell apart by feel.
I happen to like the sliding mechanism. It reminds me of the Motorola DROID because of the fact that it doesn't 'snap' open. I prefer that style of keyboard. Once opened, I find the keys to be great. The feedback I get from pressing them is great and I wouldn't have it any other way. This may indeed be one of my favorite keyboards. It sure does beat the heck out of the Samsung Epic.
Which style of keyboard is your favorite...
does it have the light leak like the EVO?
