It would be nice if Sony Ericsson could make a Xperia X10 spec phone with a qwerty keyboard too, to rival the Motorola Milestone and LG's Android phone.

samsung omnia??

to me this looks fake firstly because the qwerty is not se style,secondly the screen looks too far(not stable for slide) and finally, there is a difference in light exposure between the screen and the qwert pad.
