    Welcome to iMore! I can't say that Apple, or any manufacturer for that matter, will add physical keyboards to their devices again in the foreseeable future. The public demands small bezels and big screens, all while keeping devices as small as possible, and physical keyboards inhibit that. There are several third party accessory makers offering keyboard cases though, just in case you absolutely need physical buttons on your phone.

    I agree, we won't see a physical keyboard from Apple.

    I know people who are still sticking with Blackberry because they think they have to have a physical keyboard, they might be right but i think overall they are missing out.

    I should have specified that any manufacturer that isn't BlackBerry won't be putting a physical keyboard on their devices anytime soon.

    I do quite miss my slider phones though and would ~probably~ purchase another one if a manufacturer were to build a high-end phone with the slider. I dislike Blackberry's keyboard and would prefer a full length board. I used a Samsung Stratosphere a few years ago and it was pretty great.

    I've enjoyed the phablets as while I don't find the touch keyboards ideal, at least the screens are large enough that I don't feel like I'm losing something by having a keyboard cover it.

    Welcome to iMore, I doubt that Apple will ever add a physical keyboard to iPhone but they do sell 3rd party keyboards that you can add to the iPhone. It fits like a case

    The problem I've always had with sliders is bulk. I've owned a few and they're just really thick. Leave it to Apple to find a way to make it thin though!
