    First of all, I'm not a designer or a pro at photoshop, so take it easy on me.

    A lot of people don't like the shape of the Passport and the keyboard. I know the Passport isn't going to change before it is released, I just thought this could be an interesting idea for a future phone (that stands out). I made a picture that doesn't actually change the shape much and doesn't change the keyboard either lol. But it does change the location of the keyboard. It would not be a slider, but a stationary keyboard. But it would also give a wide screen (if that's what people want). Let me know what you think

    Width is important, but so is height.

    Not a fan, at first I thought it was a slider like the original droid series.

    I could see people wanting a z30/original droid series hybrid look for a phone, but I personally had the droid2 and rarely used the keyboard. I'll stick with my q10 for now.

    That much spacing between keys would make texting very slow

    Oh it stands out all right....good try though, but no way would a user buy it if it's Not a slider.

    Thought I'd buy the Classic based on my love of the 9900, however the total keyboard on the Passport , actual and virtual together intrigues me very much. I've always disliked jumping between screens or shifting keys to type. JMO

    I'm not one to be harsh, but that would be a horrible design.

    I find my z10 awkward to type on turned sideways in landscape mode, but would like a wee bit more width than portrait. I'm not actually sure what the ideal width would be. I would like to try the z30 but do not want to spend so much for technology that is almost a year old (would have to buy off contract) and a little hesitant re the keyboard on the Passport, so would like to have a few minutes with it before investing. While your design doesn't really appeal to me, I appreciate the time you took and that you shared it for discussion!
