Blackberry 10 & Missing Physical Keyboards!

I remember the days when I first held a blackberry phone in my hand. I was told that it was an excellent phone for email and typing some real stuff into your phone. Probably it was the first 'popular' phone brand that boasted its full QWERTY keyboard. But with the launch of the Blackberry 10 today, it now looks like Blackberry has adopted the 'touch'. Which might just mean that we won't see physical keyboards on Blackberry devices of future.

Just a question to blackberry users: Will you miss the physical keyboards on Blackberry?

Doh! The moments after I posted this, it seems that the RIM's new CEO has announced that the Blackberry devices with physical keyboards are on their way. I think physical keyboards eat up lot of real estate on the phone which would otherwise be utilized by the screen. Agree?

And there is that feature in Blackberry 10 that gives you predictions for words right on the keyboard.

But I do feel I can type faster without these predictions mode ON.
