    Will the N series physical keyboard have shortcuts? If that's taken away also, then why even have a physical keyboard?

    Even without shortcuts, it would still be useful for touch typing.

    I expect to it to have keyboard shortcuts though. It's the absence of the trackpad that's puzzling. I'd have expected that that could prove quite useful.

    That's one of the big questions for me too. The N series without shortcuts would likely push me to the Z10

    I don't see the need personally on an OS that's like what the PlayBook has. With a lot of BlackBerrys, the lack of a touch screen and/or a small touchscreen made it useful with that heavy menu+click UI.

    In these new devices, the paradigm is different and it's actually designed for a touch screen instead bolting one onto an OS never intended to be touch screen oriented. I can't think of a single time on the PlayBook UI where I've ever thought, "A trackpad would be great!"

    Just my opinion, your mileage will vary.
