    It all makes sense, but its still a pain in the ****
    Ahh, again my lament for the uselessness of a QWERTY layout for today's electronic devices - particularly since you have to hunt and peck with your thumbs anyway.

    The Orange catalogue has the T600 with a QWERTY keyboard, but has a dollar sign, no symbol anywhere.

    However, it's probably just a Photoshop image.

    The French pictures clearly show a Euro symbol instead of a $ on the French AZERTY model.

    Have you noticed that the word TYPEWRITER can be typed using just the top row of keys on a QWERTY keyboard?

    Apparently that was so that demo's of the first typewriters showed off the machines at their fastest.

    I wouldn't bet money that the UK Orange version would have the exact same QWERTY keyboard as the US model. When I use my collagues laptops in the UK, their keyboards are not the same. Mostly the symbols are in different places, but I thought some of the letters were in a different place as well.
    Just my 2 cents.
