PLEASE tell me theres a physical keyboard somewhere in there. Thats what makes the G1 stand out from the rest of these "touch" capable phones. What if the touch screen wears out? At least you've still got your keypad to fall back on. And I dont think the G1 looks that bad either.

Im guessing if they have taken away the physical keypad, theyre going to be including the CUPCAKE update on these devices - touch screen keypads instead.

There goes the success of the Google Phone...
