Despite what RIM announced that upcoming BlackBerry models running on BB 10 operating system will come in full touchscreens, the Canada-based smartphone maker squashed down rumors that its future phones will not use physical keyboards.

“It would be wrong–just plain wrong,” RIM’s CEO Thorsten Heins said. This statement comes despite the future BB phones having a virtual keyboard, as confirmed in a prototype Heins unveiled just this week.

Some reports suggested RIM does not want to enrage its loyal users who like the feeling of physical keys as they twiddle their thumbs.

The question, however, is whether the new BlackBerry phones would be able to keep up with its Android and iOS counterparts.
