the diligent folks at Pocketnow have found a very interesting “user profile” that details an upcoming QWERTY dual core Android 2.3 in the works.
Dubbed the HTC Doubleshot, it is going to be coming with the freshest version of Android – 2.3 Gingerbread – as well as a (thank god) physical QWERTY keyboard. While phones like the Motorola Atrix, the HTC Sensation, and the Samsung Galaxy S II get all the love from people, there still are significant numbers of people that live and die by physical QWERTY keyboards.
Some are speculating that, because of the name Doubleshot, that the device itself is destined to have 3D functionality. There is potential that the device itself could have dual-cameras, and could very well be a 3D device.
Either way, what we are looking at here is a strong indication that manufacturers have not dropped their commitment to producing top of the line, QWERTY devices. Diversity of hardware, as we all know, is a good thing!
Do you still care about having a physical QWERTY keyboard or are you happy with touchscreen keyboards?
