Does it need one?

Our generally trustworthy friend reports that having and using an HTC Evo for work has left him feeling that it's not the right phone for him. The complaint is lack of a full qwerty keyboard.

I can sympathize. I would tend to miss one too. But this friend is still using a Palm Treo, and it's hard to give up that luxurious, durable keyboard. (OTOH, I remember that I had a phone holster when I owned that phone. Glad it was pre-Facebook and there's no photographic evidence.)

I believe that as we begin to use more gesture oriented input devices, the need for a keyboard may decline. Nonetheless, I have a hard time being willing to let go of my keyboard yet. I'm not ready for the Evo today.
