AT&T apparently thinks that anyone who wants a good keyboard does nothing but text. That's he only conclusion I can draw from their steady flow of cheap QUERTY featurephones and total lack of high-end QUERTY smarthphones. Meanwhile, I can get a perfectly acceptable solution on every other carrier. AT&T: We Ain't Got An Effin' Clue(tm).
Are the ones who have no interest in producing smartphones with QWERTY keyboards, the only ones who bother to make phones with keyboards anymore are RIM.....they think everyone is obsessed with the 'touchscreen' fad and that they don't want anything else. And they are largely right about that.
