I'm just as upset at the loss of full modular support, but that doesn't mean that workarounds aren't possible.
So they killed off custom processors and RAM? What if a third party is still able to make modules and we're able to override that with kernel access?
And I'm not entirely convinced yet that a keyboard module is impossible with this design. It might take some very clever design to implement.
Check out the pictures from the CNET article.
A module that snaps into the big bottom slot might be able to extend out farther and be your horizontal keyboard slider.
If everybody poo-poo's the first edition and never gives it a chance, we may never see another modular phone which would be a huge loss in my eyes. I'd rather have a crappy first generation that needs a lot of hacks and workarounds than none at all.
