A phone with a keyboard

Now, I’m perfectly happy with my iPhone SE, which is less than a year old and works almost flawlessly. I’m also happy with my Macbook Pro. This does not mean I don’t still keep some of my previous preferences, such as Thinkpads (I still sometimes turn on my X60s, and still consider it to be an amazing laptop – maybe the best ever) or phones with physical keyboards. The last keyboard-equipped phone I owned was a Palm Pre (look it up, amazing phone and wonderful Operating System) but I have periodically had these impulses to go back to an older phone with a physical keyboard. I’ve looked up and nearly bought the Nokia E72, but I’ve always ended up getting other models. I’m yet again tempted by the BlackBerry KEYone.

The phone is beautiful in a business-like way, understated and elegant. This is specially true for the kind of people who also like business laptops, of course, as they share much of the same… aesthetics. BlackBerries. Thinkpads. Airports. Briefcases. Business cards. A double-shot latte with in a medium-sized cup, best bang for the buck, intense flavour, no sugar, trying to lose some weight. In any case, this phone is not only what I like looks-wise, it’s also actually good, according to the reviews. Good battery life, nice camera, latest Android version, an all-around good package.
