BB 10 phones
Personally, I would like to see at least some of the new BB10 phones get away from the physical keyboards. I use my phones for business and both of my BlackBerry phones that I have owned, have had that type of keypad. But now with the advent of bridge with the Playbook, I would like to have a phone with a larger display and use the Playbook via bridge when doing the more in depth typing. Of course I still want to have the virtual touch screen type of keyboard for text and other social media.Red Sox Nation Member

That's kinda funny. I had a storm and now a 9860 and now that I have a playbook and use it almost exclusively, I am wanting a keyboard bb. I'm the opposite of you.
Before my pb, I used my phone alot for surfing, emails, and slacker. Since my pb I only use my phone as a phone. I'm actually thinking of going back to a dumbphone. Whoa, can't believe I just said that. I don't know if I could actually do it.

But I honestly think that RIM plans to unveil both styles to make everyone happy. Read this excerpt from an article "This is where BB10 comes to the rescue, it will scale itself to all the different models and their modes of use with well-designed touch controls just like on the PlayBook, as well as the hardware keyboard usage and shortcuts we all love. Features that are properly designed to work in both keyboard and non-keyboard form factors. This is what RIM needs. This way users who want the traditional Bold form factor to have the best keyboard experience they can get or users who want the new school full touch screen phone, can have exactly what they want from the BlackBerry ecosystem with all the benefits it comes with. The same RIM OS will drive them all and if done right, no fragmentation issues for developers to deal with. The perfect mobile world indeed."Red Sox Nation Member

I think at this point everyone knows that RIM will release devices to suit both preferences. They would be stupid to go against consumer demand for an all-touch device, and they would be stupid to alienate their base and enterprise customers by NOT releasing a device with a physical keypad.
2012 will see at least one all-touch BB10 device, and at least one Bold-style BB10 device.
