    I have always liked the shape of the Pre - I'm not a big fan of the looks of landscape keyboards. My suggestion would be this: you take the Pre as it is and then decrease the gesture area by 5-6mm and halve the amount of useless area on each side of the screen, the screen would feel considerably larger. Then a small increase in size (possibly making it about 5-8mm wider) would make the world of difference while still keeping the uniqueness and beauty of the phones

    I originally planned to get the motodroid but bought my Pre instead. Haven't looked back!
    I would def much rather have a landscape keyboard. It only makes sense too, because when inputting text you want more space on the screen width wise,and anytime Im using the keyboard I am using two hands.

    If that was the case then why do most iPhone and Android users enter text in portrait mode? The answer is they don't want to switch to landscape every time they need to enter text. It's a PITA.
    Palm Vx -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre (Launch Phone 06/06/09) -> AT&T Pre Plus with Sprint EVDO swap -> Samsung Epic 4G w/ Froyo

    portrait is much faster to text. less space to move your thumbs

    Either a bigger Pre or a bigger Pixi. Landscape sliders look too business-like for me.

    3.3 inch slider? Like the SE Xperia Mini?

    Anyway, I'd like the 3.1 inch Pixi form and a 3.7-4" SLATE (no keyboard). Droid Incredible or Samsung Galaxy S (not Epic) style, but with webOS.

    Now that the droid pro is out does anyboy still wonder about the pixi. It is exactly how the new pixi should be. and its one of the options i put on the poll.

    I ahte the Pre keyboard. It's tiny and near-unusable. I'd much prefer a larger screen with a virtual keyboard or at elast a landscape slide-out keyboard. The Pre's keyboard is built for tiny hands.

    I think if they make the pre design a bit bigger and use the treo 755p keys on there then they can have a portrait type design. Though I think they should make 2 to 3 form factors a year (with top notch specs, landscape,portrait,slab) and release it on every carrier worldwide.

    Where's my 3.1" portrait slider?

    I'm perfectly fine with the current Pre form factor and size. Fits my hands perfectly.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    I'm a bigger guy, so if I could basically an epic with webos on it, I'm happy. Big landscape keyboards and big screens don't scare me.

    also I can't reach everything on the pre with one hand because my hand encompasses too much of the screen and ends up tapping in multiple places while trying to reach one.

    yeah, i really hate landscape keyboards that much.
    I agree 100%. I would like 3.7-4.0 inch screen w/portrait keyboard. I don't mind a virtual landscape keyboard--especially w/swype--but not a slider landscape keyboard.

    Whatever devices they make I hope they make them with comparably scaled resolutions and run with the same hardware APIs so we don't need to two copies of certain apps developed anymore. Same thing also applies for scaling to the tablet when that is released.

    Don't repeat the mistakes of the Pixi/Pre!

    i originally wanted a phyical keyboard. I however NEVER liked a portrait keyboard and would have prefered a landscape pre. I now don't care about a physical keyboard. But it wasn't the other phones that changed my mind. It was my Pre. My pre's keyboard started acting funny, repeating keys, not responding at all not to mention i hate the feel of the keyboard anyways. Not clicky. But my next phone will not have a portrait keyboard.

    I'm 99% sure next phone will be a keyboardless slab.
