Since the DROID, I've had several 'normal' Android phones, and I still miss that hard keyboard; I'm awful at typing on a on-screen keyboard even now.
The only hard keyboard phone I know of, that can still run modern Android is the Blackberry Key2. They are still very expensive on eBay, so I know I'm not alone in this desire to have a proper keyboard.
Then they were pretty much completely and totally dead.
They weren’t the first acquisition that Microsoft effectively killed, and I’m sure they won’t be the last.
