Sth is missing...

After a very carefull examination of the phone I think that there is sth missing compared to the other s60 phones...

Is there any abc/pencil phone? All Nokia s60 phones have it. Siemens SX1 also has a similar key (shift key-the one beside the c key with an arrow lookin up).

So is it on the sides and we cannot see it? Is it absent and how crucial can this fact be(especially on messaging)?

As you can clearly see, there are some buttons on the side as well. Maybe it is located there....

And there is also a shift on the *, but I don't know if that has the same function as the shift key on the SX1

I didn't know that there were two versions. Besides, if that's the ABC/Pencil-button, than where did the "round-with-blocks-button" go???

Maybe these are just mockups, I would guess the one poseted to the forum is correct 'cos it is the one from Sendo's press release.

But the as Memphis X has noted where is the pencil button, it is quite useful I use it all the time on my N3650, it is used for changing between different t9 dictionary / triple tap modes, it also is used for selecting object/text in a list while holding it down and dragging with the D-pad. For text once selected it alows you copy/cut/paste.

It is really useful I hope that Sendo have just moved it to the side of the phone because the functionality is really useful.

As an after thought doesn't the S60 UI require a certain number of function keys as part of the licence?

I have no idea about where the key is on the Sendo, but thanks for that tip - I knew there had to be a way of copying / pasting, but I had yet to find it (or read the manual)
