That's a requirement for me. Otherwise, no sale.
No there will not be a keyboard but there will be a epic 2, which will have a keyboard.
Nope. The Within will only have a Virtual QWERTY keyboard, so i guess this phone won't be for you.
Well that's lame then. That was one of the best points of the Epic. Why would they leave it out this time. The Epic 2 sounds like nothing but a souped up version of the Epic. Definitely not worth an entirely new phone.
i say exactly the opposite =)
I agree. That is one reason why I did not buy the EPIC.
Because you don't like phones with quality features?
i don't see a point on arguing here ^^
it's a matter of tastes, you like the keyboard, we don't and we respect you
epic 2 should be much better then epic so I'm not sure why anyone would be upset.
dual core is not the holy grail everyone thinks it is.
Samsung Galaxy S II / Galaxy Within for Sprint spotted? | This is my next...
I also wanted a physical keyboard but swiftkey more than makes up for it. in fact, after using swiftkay, a physical keyboard would be a hindrance.
That's a matter of opinion.
Has there been a phone with a 4.3" screen that has a keyboard yet? I don't think there has been one. I would NOT be willing to sacrifice screen area for a keyboard, in fact even if there were I wouldn't buy if it had a keyboard.
There are some really hot single core processors out there now. Much better than the generations we got last year. I still think they will be left behind as the developers start to create applications specifically for Dual Core.
At&t attain version is getting the keyboard AT&T’s Galaxy S II Will Have Slide-Out QWERTY, Pictures Inside
What is swiftkay?
Turns out the AT&T Samsung Slider that was supposedly the Galaxy S2 ISN'T! Its probably an Epic 2 variant like I proposed when the pictures first surfaced.... So I would say we shouldn't get our hopes for a Galaxy S2 Slider
Other carriers have QWERTY slider phones that are basically the same size as the Evo 3D... I don't know why anyone would NOT want that... doesn't make it much bigger because they can stuff some of the electronics in that section, making the screen portion smaller.
Even if you don't use the keyboard, it's not adding much, if any mass, and the one time you want to write an email--you'll be able to. The one thing I can't stand is that the virtual keyboards take up half, or the entire screen depending on your orientation.
As stated earlier it's a matter of PERSONAL taste and opinion. The original sgs2 does NOT have a KB and yet Samsung sold MILLIONS of them despite the fact SOME people think it would be "better" with a KB. I think each carrier will have different phones that will satisfy both sides soon but don't expect the sgs2 to have a KB if they have already been successful worldwide without one
I agree with everyone that says that it's a matter of personal taste and opinion.
For example, my brother loves everything about the Evo, except it didn't have a keyboard, so he went with the Evo Shift.
I really don't care whether a phone has a keyboard or not, as long it doesn't make it to much thicker, and it's sexy, the phone can have a keyboard.
But the Within would still be the best phone out there, whether or not it has a keyboard.
I will not buy it if it has a keyboard, I personally don't want a phone with a physical keyboard. I never used it on my G1, and I still even had some problems with it. There are more loose parts to break on a phone if they have a slide out keyboard.
The EVO 3D isn't that thick, but if I can have a phone a little thinner like the GS2 without a keyboard that is what I prefer.
But not everyone has my opinion, which is why I think Android is great, there are a lot of choices. I would be thrilled to see Sprint release this phone in two versions to please everyone.
I don't have much luck with the onscreen keyboard. I always seem to press the wrong button and it's a lot faster and easier to type on the physical keyboard. Especially when you're doing a lot of texting and typing on messageboards.
