Messaging related phones have become all the rage as the texting continues to grow as a preferred way of quick communication, sms, e-mail and messengers are very poplar way of the communication nowadays and Nokia N900 looks like the perfect choice if you want to get the rid of the t9 and stay connected with friends when you are away from a computer.
Full touchscreen devices offers user-friendly interface and works brilliantly in some applications such as web browsing or navigating through large number of photos but the usability breaks down significantly when you need to input a large amount of text.
Nokia N900 is also a full touchscreen device but as it also slides up lengthwise to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard with a REAL tactile feedback that quickly transform this powerful smartphone into mini laptop with huge touch sensitive and high-resolution display making it more writer-friendly especially for those of you who prefer the real over the virtual keys.
Anyway, here is the short video Maemo UI team in which Sanna gives brief introduction on how to take advantage of the keyboard on Nokia N900.
I would be interested to hear your thoughts as well, do you the real over the virtual keyboards!? Would you rather have a full touchscreen device or combo device that features huge high resolution touchscreen and hardware QWERTY keyboard?
