If you're currently looking for an affordable Touch and Type Android phone, then you might want to considering checking out Globe's Cloudfone Temptation:
Made by Huawei, Cloudfone Temptation comes as a free bundled handset with Globe Plan 499!
A true Touch and Type device, Cloudfone Temptation comes replete with a 2.6 capacitive touchscreen and a full QWERTY thumb-type keyboard. Other features include a 3.2 MegaPixel camera, 528 MHz processor, video recorder, and Wifi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity support.
As of writing, there's no other place where you can get this phone other than via Globe Plans. I've yet to check if it's also available through prepaid kit.
