The upcoming BlackBerry Android smartphone complete with a physical keyboard, thought to be codenamed BlackBerry Mercury and called the DTEK70, has been teased in a short video posted by TCL President and General Manager Steve Cistulli. Even though the clip is of relatively short duration, it does give a glimpse of the physical QWERTY keyboard present on the upcoming BlackBerry Mercury smartphone. Referring to the physical keyboard on the BlackBerry Mercury, Cistulli said "imPRESSively designed. distinctly different," in his Twitter post.

To recall, BlackBerry CEO John Chen in November said that the company would be making one last smartphone - a QWERTY offering - before licensing the brand to third-party manufacturers. This phone is thought to be codenamed Mercury, and be launched as the BlackBerry DTEK70.

The BlackBerry Mercury smartphone was previously leaked in live images last month. The images leaked on Chinese micro-blogging website Weibo suggested that the BlackBerry Mercury will feature a physical keyboard. The phone is expected to run on Android 7.0 Nougat and sport a 4.5-inch display with an unusual 1080x1620 pixel screen resolution along with 420ppi pixel density.

Sure, going full-size touchscreens might be the new trend, but touchscreen keyboards will never beat physical keyboards. In fact, one of the original and best-selling Android devices of all times was a full-qwerty phone, the Motorola Droid. For those of you who don’t know, a “QWERTY” keyboard is a nickname for a device with a full physical keyboard. The name comes from the first 6 keys on the top row of every standard keyboard.

The Droid Pro has been out for over a year now, and, although it didn’t take over the market, so to speak, it is a business man’s (or woman’s) delight. With a design that really embodies the look and feel of a Blackberry, it’s powered by Android, which is clearly the superior option for smartphones. Furthermore, the phone will not cost you a buck, as long as you sign up for a two year contract. Finally, this device is a Global Ready device (Verizon), meaning that you can take it with you wherever you go. And best of all, it works on two of the best carriers in America (Verizon and Sprint).

Moving into the AT&T category, the Samsung Captivate Glide is a great 4G device that costs slightly less than its competitors. In addition, the Glide is a powerhouse, thanks to its dual-core processor, and has a great array of specs, which helped Samsung’s QWERTY phone gain its spot on our list. Needless to say, the phone sports a truly beautiful QWERTY keyboard, with 4 dedicated buttons that work with the Android OS (home, menu, back, and search). Although, at first, the battery may seem below par, the 4″ display won’t be hogging as much power, compared to the display of a Galaxy Nexus or Note.

Verizon’s next HTC Android smartphone has turned up in the wild, with  AndroidGuys scoring images of the QWERTY slider.  Currently unnamed, the handset is said to have a 4-inch touchscreen and a 1.2GHz processor; of course there’s also a four-row keyboard for easier text entry.

Interestingly, the handset is also a so-called world phone, including both CDMA and GSM radios for use on Verizon’s network in the US and – going by the SIM installed in the prototype – Vodafone’s network while abroad.  It’s expected to launch in early 2011 and is running Android 2.2 at present, though that could change between now and commercial availability.
