BlackBerry seeks patent on hidden QWERTY
Those with a fear of new things shouldn't worry because the QWERTY equipped BlackBerry Q10 hasn't even launched yet. Still, the filing shows that the company knows that it will continue to be judged by the ease of typing that has been associated with BlackBerry from the first time that a physical keyboard was attached to a pager.

Instead of being hidden behind the main body of the phone, its hidden in the body itself. I have no idea how that will work, but if they can pull it off, it would be cool to see.

Lol...i'm just playing with Bone.
Indeed it'll be a nice feature to see if they do manage to pull it.

As far as I understand it will be pretty much the same as keypad of NOKIA 8800...

Anyone here remembers that metal Palm PDA with the slide touch pad? The Palm Tungsten.
