Mouse 4G Verizon phone with a QWERTY slide out coming soon?

Does Verizon have any upcoming 4G Droid phones featuring a slide out QWERTY keyboard? Maybe a Droid LTE or something?

What I've always found amusing about all this talk about touch screen is how everyone gets excited about a slide out keyboard.

Personally, I prefer a keyboard as well, but that doesn't really jive with the whole touch screen movement.

What I'm getting at is this whole "tablets are awesome" crap going on right now...

4.3" phones really, IMO, negate the need for a keyboard, having owned an OG Droid and a Droid X. The X really made me forget I ever liked the physical keys. Tablets are awesome

You have zombies wanting to eat your brains and you need to plant your aggressive plants to stop them. Touch screen wins.

Composing an email on touch screen phones is a nightmare... it's not like a 10" tablet. You really NEED a slide out screen if you're using the email a lot, which I do.

Not at all, especially with SwiftKey. You'll forget all about physical keys with that keyboard, it's ace. It even uses your gmail and texts to learn how you type.

Droid 3 = 4" and no LTE. That is craptastic.

Piss poor choice on Moto's part to not make Droid 3 4G.

Indeed, might as well get a Droid 2 Global... only a marginal screen and CPU improvement is not reason for me to choose it over (say) another Droid based phone or even an iPhone.

There is no way I'd get a Droid 2 Global over a Droid 3. Besides dual core on the Droid 3, you also get a better camera which believe me it needs, the extra row for numbers on the keyboard, additional front-facing camera (I wish I had that), and higher resolution screen. If you can wait until July (assuming that's the date) then go Droid 3.

As for 4G... sadly I could not find any with slider keyboard. If it makes you feel better though, the 4G phones apparently have far worse battery life.

Assuming the Droid 3 is no more than 5 weeks away I can wait, but if it's not out by then I'm switching to ATT.

Say wha?!

You know there are more complaints about AT&T than any other carrier, and that most people switch from AT&T to Verizon, right?

You should get a used dumb phone from craigs list and wait for the good handsets before you do a totally bone headed move like that.
