Because the physical keyboard is SO much better than virtual keyboards. I can type quickly and ACCURATELY. I've been hating using on-screen keyboard for 4 or 5 years until the PRIV came out. Unfortunately BB really screwed up the launch and the phone didn't sell that well, so it may be the last keyboard phone ever. A pain to press the home button? Give me a break!

you mean Amazon rain forest?? yes it should work there as well.
You won't be disappointed. See my post above. The keyboard shortcuts alone are worth it to me. I just slide the screen up, short press a key to text my wife or long press the same key to call her. You can use keyboard shortcuts to open apps as well. It's also very handy to be able to type while making use of the entire screen real estate. On a standard all-touch phone, half the screen is occupied by the virtual keyboard.

What a deal on a severely underrated phone. Easily FP worthy. I've been using one for over a month (I paid full price since Verizon phones are rarely discounted). Some highlights:

1. Touch-enabled physical keyboard (the physical keyboard acts like a trackpad which can be used to scroll through web pages, select predictive words, fine edit text, and take advantage of gestures like swipe down to bring up special characters and swipe left to delete the last word).
2. Many features borrowed from BB10 including the virtual keyboard, Hub, Calendar, and Contacts.
3. DTEK.
4. Faster security updates [blackberry.com].
5. Pop-up widgets.
6. Productivity tab.
7. Keyboard shortcuts.

Looks good on paper, but I heard the build quality is bad

There is a slight flex when pushing on the back panel, likely a result of the slider design, but other than that it feels premium. I particularly like the "glass weave" material on the back; it's like a combination of suede and rubber. Also, the sliding mechanism is almost addictive to open and close.

I was going to jump onboard the Priv, but I played with it and the keyboard is soft and mushy, not clicky like classic Blackberry keyboards. Had to pass for that reason.

Was also super laggy but that may have just been the AT&T display model which is full of garbage bloat.

swype or w/e pretty much made a physical keyboard be much less effective.

This is an excellent phone. Been a Galaxy user for 3 years prior to buying a Priv, and I wouldn't trade it for anything else out there right now.
