BlackBerry Kopi proves its existence on eBay

Thought BlackBerry was gone? Thought physical QWERTY keyboards have gone the way of the Dodo? Perhaps many thought so too, but BlackBerry clearly doesn't think so, and apparently neither does someone on eBay. A used BlackBerry Kopi, flaunting its glorious hardware keys, is up for bidding on eBay, which is, of course, suspicious considering the device has never been announced.

Typo BlackBerry-esque iPhone keyboard draws lawsuit

Remember that BlackBerry keyboard-looking case for the iPhone that popped up at the tail end of 2013? Looks like BlackBerry saw it too, and they weren't too happy about how similar it looked to their own handset models.

LG Enact Android slider keeps Verizon in the QWERTY business

It's not as if the LG Enact was the last device on the planet to offer a full physical keyboard with Android software - though the most recent entry with Verizon was the BlackBerry Q10. This LG device brings a sliding front panel that reveals a full QWERTY keyboard much in the same way that the Motorola DROID 4 did back in February of 2012. There's also a near-identical device by the name of LG Mach that was released earlier this year - not that you'd need to know that if you're sticking with Verizon.

Samsung Galaxy Folder may return flip phone to fashionability with Android

With the Samsung Galaxy Folder, a smartphone from this worldwide manufacturer will single-handedly bring back the fashionability of physical QWERTY keyboards. At least that's what the tip is from Korea along manufacturing lines where the smartphone is said to be being built. There it's rumored that large amounts of reports of "discomfort" have been rolling in on the backs of their massively successful touchscreen-only device lines - and it may be time to create yet another Galaxy handset.
