QWERTY keyboard on mobile phones becomes more and more a must have feature in India. We frequently have come across people asking about the most value for money offering and as a result we have come up with a list of QWERTY mobile phones which are pretty affordable in nature.
While the T9 mobiles are pretty good for sending an SMS, when it comes to have longer chats with your friends from Facebook or Orkut, a QWERTY mobile does it best!
Below are a few handsets which are under Rs 9000 and come with QWERTY keypads.
The Samsung Corby TxT has a 2.2 inch TFT screen with a limited internal memory of 38MB, which can be expanded up to 8 GB with a microSD card. The phone is designed to meet the heavy chatting and Messaging needs of youth, with their QWERTY keypad for quick messaging access.

The second handset is the Samsung Corby Mate which has been equipped with a slide out QWERTY keypad giving it a slightly bigger form. The handset also comes with a rather unique styling. A secondary keypad is placed along the horizontal left side of the handset with the keys placed one below the other in sequence, very different from the traditional form.
