I too like the idea of a keyboard. I have a UTStarcom 6700 and the 
keyboard is of the slide out variety which works very well.  Here is the 
url to a www page at the UTStarcom www site that shows an image of the 
unit with the keyboard slid out:


This keyboard design gets generally good reviews from users however one 
problem with it is  that keying in numerics is a pain because it 
requires a special key + the selected number. Also, given the handset's 
form factor, the keyboard is a bit small for those with large hands/fingers.

Best Regards,
