    Default Just thinking......

    The BB10 N series with the incomplete keyboard is just the L series with a physical keyboard. Why have a physical keyboard minus all the features we are accustomed to?? All those gestures are great for an all touchscreen phone but there are still some of us who don't really like an all touchscreen phone. I really believe RIM is doing this to phase out the physical keyboard. I guess we have to go along with change or do without.....

    I think this is a bit too much of a conspiracy theory

    What do you mean by "incomplete" keyboard?
    Blatant placeholder signature.

    maybe they can make a virtual trackpad app that looks exactly like the trackpad of old, with all the buttons.

    just saying,,,

    It`s not incomplete...the trackpad and the keys to either side will be redundant on a touchscreen device. It`s ultimately more useful to have extra screen size rather than having that space permanently taken over by buttons that can be rendered virtually.

    An all touchscreen device with all the features doesn't really need a physical keyboard..
