If you're a fan of keyboard-equipped BlackBerry smartphones, you won't be disappointed by the Q10. However the app store needs filling out and the small, square screen isn't ideal for some uses.

RIM's three new touchscreen smartphones run BlackBerry OS 7. The Bold 9930 has the best QWERTY keyboard seen on a smartphone and the Torch models are the top BlackBerry smartphones in their form factor.
ThinkOutside use to rule the market for Bluetooth keyboards, but went away a couple of years ago. The Jorno BT keyboard is available for pre-order for $79 and works with a variety of smartphones.
The new KIN Windows Phone devices appeal to both of my teen daughters and I think they will seriously challenge the feature phone QWERTY keyboard devices currently on the market. They are not designed to challenge the iPhone or high end smartphones, but they offer more than the typical feature phone.

The E52 is Nokia's best candybar-format E-series handset yet. Compact and lightweight, it crams in plenty of features and delivers superb battery life. If you don't need a touch-screen, consider this smartphone.
The HTC Snap's physical design (especially the mini-QWERTY keyboard) is superb. Battery life is impressive, while the Inner Circle email-sorting idea is inspired. It's just a shame about the small 2.4in. screen.

HTC, manufacturer of the T-Mobile G1 and Google Ion smartphones, is scheduled to unveil its new Android-powered smartphone, the HTC Hero, in London on June 24, according to a new report via DigiTimes.Interestingly, the HTC Hero will be available in two versions: with and without a QWERTY keyboard.
The T-Mobile Dash remains one of my favorite smartphones of all time and after I get home from CTIA I am going with my wife to pick up a new all black one for her for $50 at T-Mobile since she broke another one. She LOVES it and won't go to another device, even after several of my failed attempts. That may change though if she saw what I get to see this week here at CTIA. HTC announced the Snap Windows Mobile non-touchsreen device that is the true successor to the T-Mobile Dash/HTC Excalibur. One key feature of the Snap's new QWERTY keyboard is the offset arrangement of the keys since QWERTY thumb keyboards really should not have their keys all lined up as most of them are, but offset to make text entry more accurate.
HP's new flagship iPAQ has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a neat D-pad and a good set of connectivity features. However, HP has missed some key tricks that would make this an excellent rather than very good Windows Mobile smartphone.
Celio Corp has a different take on how to offer mobile staff access to applications and data, one that is based upon making use of the power of Windows Mobile-based Smartphones. This way mobile staff members can access pocket office (Outlook, Word, Excel and Powerpoint) using a much larger screen and keyboard.
Jason posted the news that a WordPress iPhone client was coming soon and it is now available on the Apple App Store. I downloaded it with hopes that I could then blog here from the iPhone, but this WordPress client requires you to have WordPress 2.5 or later running and this custom ZDNet site is running version 2.1.x right now. This new application has me wishing for copy and paste functionality for offline post creation and Bluetooth keyboard support for long post creation. Come on Apple, give us what other high end smartphones already have please.
We're looking forward to a second iteration of this clamshell-format Windows Mobile 6.0 smartphone with a bigger inner screen and support for document editing.
If the Nokia E51 had a front-facing camera for video calling we'd be hard pressed to find fault with it. Even so, it's an excellent pocket-friendly Symbian smartphone that's packed with an impressive array of features.
I've been primarily using Windows Mobile Smartphones for the last year or so, with the T-Mobile Dash as my favorite device. I like the integrated QWERTY keyboard, but every once in a while I do miss a phone keypad. I thought the HTC Vox would be the device to knock out the T-Mobile Dash, but I find the Dash just too pocketable to give up even though the Vox is an excellent device. The Helio Ocean is a unique device with a dual sliding design and I personally never gave it much thought because it doesn't run Windows Mobile or S60. It appears that there may soon be a new device I'll have to look at from AT&T though as the Pantech C810 device is now up on Amazon.
The Palm Foleo is taking a lot of heat in the press right now and after taking some time to think about it some more I tend to agree that there really isn't a place for the device between a smartphone and a PC. There is a simple solution to add a full size QWERTY keyboard that has been around for years and smartphones are so advanced today that there really isn't a need for more. Do you think there is a market for the Palm Foleo?
The Ameo is a well-specified and generally usable Windows Mobile 5.0 device with a large screen and an attachable keyboard. But despite all its built-in functionality, which includes HSDPA and GPS, we suspect that few mobile professionals are likely to replace their notebooks with one.
Windows Mobile Smartphones have traditionally been able to view Office documents, especially attachments that are sent, using 3rd party applications. Now with the popularity of QWERTY keyboard models with larger landscape displays and more power, people are looking for more functionality and DataViz just released a preview of a product that addresses that need in regards to native Office documents.
This innovative laser-projected keyboard works surprisingly well, but there are enough rough edges to deter the majority of mobile professionals.
This Windows Mobile 2003-based smartphone has two key advantages: the excellent myVoq search/store/send utility and a built-in keyboard that's surprisingly easy to use.
