    I don't know how many of you actually have an iPhone but if you do, don't you wish they had a pull out physical keyboard that gave you the option to use both the virtual or physical keyboards? It would also be nice if you could copy and paste text. The Palm Pre comes out next month and they have the pull out keyboard, but I'm unsure if they included the virtual keyboard into the model too. Which brings me to my next question.....does anyone know or heard of any rumors of Apple implementing a pull out keyboard in any future iPhone models? Google seemed to have their crap together when they developed the G1.

      I've been a Palm Treo girl every since I gave up the flip phone in '05. I went from a 600, to a 650 to the Centro and I'm patiently waiting this Pre so I can snag that too! I would've went with the 755 over the Centro but then didn't have any in stock and I needed a phone that day (It was the day I went to Running of the Brides to get my dress!) so I settled for the Centro. It's cool, but I can't wait for the Pre!

            I highly doubt that Apple will be integrating a physical keyboard into their iPhone anytime soon. One of the "praises" of the iPhone is that it has minimal moving parts, so a physical keyboard, sliding or otherwise, seems unlikely. Sliding keyboards have been seen as "faulty" and easy to break by some, so that's a definite no, and also if they just added the keyboard to the front of the phone, it takes away from the screen size, so again, a no.

            BUT! There are talks of a bluetooth keyboard that will integrate with the iPhone as a wireless attachment for those who need a "real" keyboard.

            My .02 cents after selling electronics and working next to an "Apple head" every day lol

              I am psyched about the G1 and plan on picking it up when my sprint contract is up. I really like the Iphone, my sister and co worker have it and it's a great device, but I hated the touch keypad, just doesn't work for me. I played around with the G1 at a Tmobile store and it seems to have the things I love about Iphone but the keypad I like for texting. Can't wait to ditch my Razr

                Are you freaking kidding me!?! That's amazing!!! I used to be able to do that with my BlackBerry Pearl but now that I have a Curve, I can't do it due to all the small little keys.

                    I couldn't wait to get rid of my crap-ass Treo 750, so I got the iphone a few months ago and LOVE IT! I still have a bit of trouble typing, but the functionality of it makes the slight annoyance of typing minimal. I *heart* my iphone.
