The BlackBerry format is getting old, that’s for sure, but some companies still use the combo between QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen. One of them is Nokia and now Huawei has a fresh product with a touch display and a portrait keyboard that looks quite comfortable. Meet the Huawei M660:


This model was recently uncovered courtesy of Bluetooth certification and we know that the Huawei M660 has a 3.2 inch screen and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It’s supposed to launch on MetroPCS and its format reminds me a bit of the Motorola Pro, that actually had a very nice keyboard, because of domed buttons. Sadly, since this model is MetroPCS material, odds are that we’ll never see it in Europe or Asia. The question is: is it worth it to purchase a device with a physical keyboard nowadays?

Virtual keyboards are evolving, everyone’s launching 4.7 inch or 4.8 inch smartphones, so there’s enough room to type accurately and with all the cool typing assist out there, you’ll never get spelling wrong. As far as the Huawwei M660 goes,t his budget phone doesn’t have any more specs leaked. If I were to speculate, I’d say it comes with a 1GHz (or close) CPU, 512MB RAM and 2GB of storage, plus microSD.
