One response to “HTC Shifting Focus Away From Hardware Keyboards in Device Designs”

    It would be nice to offer the choice, but the keyboards do add bulk and some weight — what I think the worst failure on the handset makers parts is the omission of a really good, high quality speaker phone system on current handsets. My old TouchPro2 had an excellent conference calling feature with two mics and speakers on the back of the phone — place the handset face down on a table and the speakerphone instantly turned on. Plus it allowed for very clear conference calls with multiple callers. Now that’s a feature I definitely wish they would bring back.
