To attract the business folks, who need a Windows Phone 7 device with a full front-facing physical QWERTY keyboard, Nokia is working on a Windows Phone 7 run handset that has a full QWERTY keyboard.
At present, there are a few Windows Phone 7 devices with a sliding QWERTY keyboard in the market. They are Dell Venue Pro and the HTC Arrive. However, these devices were not sold in millions of units. There will be a time when Microsoft will once again sound appealing to the business-related consumers, but so far we haven’t seen any other details regarding QWERTY WP7 devices.
Nokia is reported to be the first company to launch a BlackBerry-like Windows Phone 7 device. The smartphone is rumored to feature a vertical touchscreen along with a full QWERTY keyboard in the front. But, it will be a candy bar device, not a slider like the original BlackBerry Torch, and it will be introduced in all markets where the Nokia E6 is available.
