    I know most people use touchscreens. Unfortunately (for a couple different reasons), I cannot do so. I _need_ a physical keyboard. I am growing weary always waiting on a keyboard phone to be released with the specs I want.

    Ideally, I'd like somewhere between 4" and 5" display. I want a quad-core processor, and I want 2 GB RAM. Of course, at this time, there are only a few phones that meet this, such as the Galaxy Note 2 and Nexus 4.

    The Galaxy Note 2 sounds awesome. I am not sure if it would be too big for me, though. I need to try it out in a store.

    So...what I really want to ask is... Is anyone else in the same boat? Have you found a really good solution? I have seen slider cases for the iPhone. That would be ideal because I could still hold it by the keyboard and type, whereas some of the other keyboard cases I have seen you cannot do that. Plus, you have to find one that will fit your phone well.

    I have been very seriously considering the Note 2 assuming it's not just too big to work with. I would love the extra screen real estate if it'll work out. Does anyone know of a keyboard solution that would work very well with it?

    If not that, the Nexus?

    Or anything else that matches up with what I have said?

    Thanks much in advance.

    PS - I use Verizon.

    Well the Samsung galaxy is obviously an excellent phone. Haven't used it but seen it in the store. It is 5.5-inches, runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, is powered by a 1.6-gigahertz quad-core processor and features an 8-megapixel camera that can shoot 1080p video. But but but, the major drawback here and also your concern is that it is a tad too big. Definitely doesn't fit in the pocket. So if you are ok with that, I suggest you go for it. Also read somewhere that the Note 3 is going to have its own physical slide out keyboard. Hope this helped
