Maybe the folks in Cupertino are actually listening to feedback? Should RIM be worried? BTW, ... Apple iPhone forum

    An iPhone with a keyboard?

    Maybe the folks in Cupertino are actually listening to feedback? Should RIM be worried? BTW, the image is a fake as far as I know

    Will Jobs launch an iPhone with a keyboard? He says "definitely not" and is emphatic about it. So that's that.

    Well, yes, and then again maybe. What he is apparently doing is canvassing the idea with operators. "If you had a keyboard version, how many would you take?"
    And he has taken this beyond just chatting: actual prototypes - not just mockups - have been sent to senior executives at some operators. I'm not allowed to even hint which operators... but I can report that the keyboard has "issues" which are not yet resolved.

    In another part of the forest, of course, Apple's rivals have the opposite problem. They want touch-screen technology and they are working hard on it. And they, too, have "issues" with making it work properly.

    Sources inside one operator say that there definitely will not be a slide-out keyboard this year. But, I'm told, they are definitely expecting to see one, aimed specifically at corporate buyers, around this time next year.

    Like all rumours it's premature, and people can change their minds. But it's not speculation. The prototypes actually exist and they (nearly) work.

    !?, who would want that over a blackberry? I could understand (just barely understand) wanting the 3g iphone over the blackberrys, until we get the bold.

    thats a horrible photoshoop.

    putting it into perspective, and judging by the size of the earphones, i'd say thats a lot bigger than my pearl.

    do not want "]
