https://pyra-handheld.com/boards/threads/why-asking-qualcomm-for-one-of-their-chips-wont-work.83515/I find this interesting in regards to the Pyra. If I remember correctly, Qualcomm wasn't exactly responsive back in the search for a Pyra SoC, but this phone is also a low quantity project. Maybe Chen can help the Pyra project a little to gain access to a fancy new SoC in the future?
I'd put cost / complexity above any of those reasons. Aside from targetting a mass target audience of inept, sausage-fingered simians.Sadly it features the most prominent reasons why keyboards are now gone from mobile units.

Looks like a thumb board to me. Reminds me a lot of my HTC Desire Z. I really miss that phone. It was juuuust starting to die when ED took pre-order money for the Pyra and I was certain I could keep pushing it until the Pyra was ready.10-finger paradigm
