  1. right, if you're messaging, facebook, whatever, you really need to type fast. qwerty on low-end p[hones would be good. Like the Nokia E63.

    this is their first phone, so presumably an INQ qwerty would be on the way

  2. Having used an INQ1 I can safely say that T9 on a 12 key pad is just fine. Plus for da kidz they can use it eyes-free – a big plus.

    If it had a QWERTY it would cost more and be bigger. Both minuses for <insert non-derogatory term for the 95% of the world who don't care about S60 or iPhones>
