Apple has prided itself on bringing touch technology to the wider market. Ever since the original iPhone, it has put other touch-based smartphones to shame, and while others have caught up, rivals have yet to match the essence Apple captured with its unique technology.
But the BlackBerry, despite the company coming close to collapse, still engages the enterprise market with its range of physical keyboard enabled devices. It's one of the many reasons why I personally switched back to the BlackBerry. But the day that Apple takes a leaf out of BlackBerry maker Research in Motion's book is the day it dips from $600 a share down to $15 a share.
Keyboard lovers, we can live and hope. With Apple's increased iOS-ification of its OS X platform, it's highly unlikely we'll see an iPhone with a physical keyboard. Shame.
