Hi all,

Trying to find an Android phone with a physical keyboard.  Can anyone recommend anything?  Budget upto around $600 or so, but less is fine.  Not for a "power user" (my gf).

Thanks

For that price range I'd recommend
 HTC Desire Z ~$550 inc shipping from a few places on Pricespy
 Motorola Milestone 2 ~$580 inc shipping from a few places on Pricespy
I've had a play with the Desire Z and it feels very high quality but perhaps a little heavy due to the materials used.

My vote is for the HTC Desire Z. It is a little "heavy", especially with a decent leather case on it, but the keyboard is excellent.
