The tactile quality of a hardware QWERTY keyboard cannot be replicated. But then, how come Singapore gets a raw deal regarding QWERTY smartphones?
- the Samsung Epic 4G is CDMA (cannot be used in Singapore)
- the Motorola Droid 2 is still stuck somewhere
- the Motorola Charm is underpowered (600MHz CPU, Android 2.1)
- the HTC Desire Z is strangely reduced in specs (800MHz CPU) and seems to have build quality issues.
Strangely, what's left is the Blackberry Torch. Not many apps available on the Blackberry platform, but I like its Universal search function.
(EDIT) Oops, just found out that the Blackberry OS does not support Flash. Guess I have to continue looking...
