Top smartphones with QWERTY keyboards

If you're a road warrior who sends and receives plenty of email, then these mobile phones with full keyboards will make your life much easier.

These mobile phones are a great alternative if you're the type of person who wants a smartphone, but don't fancy writing long SMS messages or dialling (and leaving fingerprints) on the handheld's touchscreen. It can be awkward using a stylus on a bumpy road, but with an on-board QWERTY keyboard it's easy to bang out emails when you're on the go. Most give you the option of entering text by either typing or writing.

The best part is that these handhelds are only slightly bigger than standard mobile phones, so they easily slip into your jacket pocket. You can expect to pay a slight premium on some models, but if a keyboard's what you need, these handhelds are definitely worth considering.

Have to wait on this one. 9930 due out in Australia september 2011 and 9810 which is my favourite. Big question as to why 9930 costs more than the Torch mark 2. Love my current torch and the improved mark 2 with its quicker processor will be even better along with extra Ram,better resolution,OS 7. Only worry is Qnx Blackberry phones in 2012-same OS on my playbook.

i love the sony ericsson x10 mini pro, but i think it is a bit too small. I haven't got one yet.. I like the nokia n97 mini but then people say it is hard to flip out..

I'd like to see the nokia n97 mini. It isn't a great smartphone, but its keyboard really good (in my opinion)

I am torn right now between the Nokia n97 mini and the Nokia 6760. The n97 mini clearly has higher specs overall but some reviews seemed to suggest that the 6760 had a better keyboard for typing long e-mails which is what I really want.

What about the Samsung Galaxy S Pro (Epic 4g) - if that comes to Australia in the very near future AND with Android 2.2 update, surely this handset will mothball the competition listed here? Most of these phones fall so far short of what is expected of a 2010/2011 smartphone!

I would get the N900 in a second if it had gapless playback of audio files. Unfortunately it does not.
