Several years ago, BlackBerry had already combined touch and keyboard, both with the 9800 and 9900 series. Very popular devices.

The world, for the most part, has moved on to touch. There is still a very vocal group that insists on keyboards and the Q10 is for them. There will be quite the learning curve as the OS is totally different. How well BlackBerry integrates the keyboard into BB 10 is the main question for me.
