Having a keyboard on a portable device is a waste of valuable real estate. The keyboard should be imprinted on your fingers so by either tapping your fingers with your thumb or using a pattern of finger movements a message is transferred to your portable device.
This is a necessary device for those of you living in areas that do not have the best cell signal. Pull out the Remote Control Helicopter Cell Signal Booster and get those extra bars you have been needing to finish the conversation. Of course, if you help someone out with their signal and you find their need for signal was not vital you just flip on your Smart Phone B Gone and end that problem.
