Sony patent suggests dual-keyboard Xperia Play could come in the future

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play was and still is the only handset with a gamepad - the perfect addition to a handset for gamers, and now the newest patent filed by Sony suggests that a successor is possible and it will feature not one, but two slide-out keyboards, according to a filing with the US Patent and Trademark Office.
could have both a gamepad and a full QWERTY keyboard. That’s already a big plus for those of you who prefer to have real feedback from pressing physical keys. And the mechanism to make this work actually is not all that complicated - the two keyboards just slideout.So, how does that work and what does it mean? First of all, thus a possible future device
Now, the two sliding mechanism should allow each of the keyboards to be accessed separately and if Sony nails it, this will be one handset that will be truly worthy to be called a transformer. And yes, it seems that in that case the extra thickness actually won’t be a dealbreaker. How do you like Sony’s idea?
- Display 4.0" 480 x 854 pixels
- Camera 5 MP
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S2, Single core, 1000 MHz
- Storage 0.4 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1500 mAh(6.41h 3G talk time)

I say just use the gamepad to type. Like a normal ps product. Avoid the extra bulk still have the capabilities of typing physically. Also I wouldn't be surprised if they make it capable of running nds perfectly. I know it runs ps1 perfect at least when i had it. I wouldn't even mind having this 3g to have quad core capabilities and ultra strong graphics proc.
