Keyboards are proliferating!

That looks rather bulkier that the Gemini -- and chicklet keys!

Yes, physical keyboards are a good thing, but a poor effort with awkward buttons could do damage to perceptions of physical keyboard pocketable devices and damage the market.

I obviously haven't tried this FX thing but from the photos it doesn't look too good.

Until the Gemini, I thought the best pkb was on the Nokia E7. I limped along with its Symbian until I gave it up for a Blackberry Priv. The Priv's keyboard was physical, that's about the best you could say.

I realize the Gemini keyboard is hard to replicate in a true phone, but I don't know why hardware developers don't crib more from the E7's approach, which allowed for a pkb much better than a chicklet's.
