I know people who are as adamant that they want a qwerty keyboard as I
am that I don't.  If I could get a Treo with no keyboard, I'd probably
have replaced my current phone a year ago and wouldn't be able to
justify being in the market for one the day the 1973 is released.  So
I'd think having versions both with- and without keyboard would be the
best strategy (but if I knew anything about marketing, I'd probably
not be a professor).
