I have had mixed emotions about this phone since day one seeingas I haven't actually been hands on with the evo its hard for me to say if I made the right choice. One of the deciding factors for me was that this is my first smart phone and the physical keyboard would come in handy for me. But Why why why ?!? Did they make it a left handed keyboard??? Nothin against leftys but you guys are the minority. Everytime I want to use my keyboard I have to awardly position my rght hand while holding the phone with my left and I usually end up hitting something on the screen during the process. On my old phone ...an lg rumor2 lol.. I could flip the keyb oard up in one smooth motion and I used it all the tim..now I use it so little that I'm one of the I wish it weren't there people.....it is just annoying and frankly doesn't make much sense...that seems like a huge oversight for such a top notch phone..... Btw the horrible typing u see is a direct result of the stupid touch keyboard.....I can't type on my phone!!!
