I've been a Nokia Communicator user since 1997 with my first Nokia 9000i. I've owned every single iteration (and still do) up until the Nokia E7 which I adored. Yet, as time passes on, I've found myself having to leave my Nokia E7 behind in favor of Android and more modern hardware.
I looked at the new Nokia phones, they're nice looking but I just can't seem to pull the trigger. I've had the Samsung Note 4 previously, until I ended up breaking the screen and going back to my E7. And I'm now looking towards the Note 8.
However, what I'd really like to see is a new Nokia Communicator with full QWERTY keyboard running Android. I heard rumors a while back that Nokia was looking at the idea, however I've heard nothing since. I suppose my question is two fold: 1) Is there any info on a new Communicator? 2) If not, how do you find the new Nokia 8?
Thanks for reading!
I think there's a huge number of people who would love an Android phone with a slide out physical keyboard, like the N900/N950, me included. However, I don't know if huge is enough people to justify HMD making such a phone - I hope it is.
