I have two android phones.  I have the new Samsung Galaxy s4.  It has
pretty good battery life (2600 mah battery).  I get all day with fairly
heavy use.  It is great and has root already.  The other phone, which gets
even better battery life, is the Motorolla Droid RAZR MAXX.  It has a
monster 3300 mah battery.  I get a day or two off of it and I don't have
any power saving features turned on.  I have the original and I believe
there is a root and even custom roms.  I do not root it since it is a work
device.  I would not be surprised if the new one has a root.  There is also
this http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_razr_i_xt890-4998.php.  It is
interesting since it is an x86 instead of ARM.   Not sure about root/roms
on it.

Neither of them have a hardware keyboard but I decided to get a mini
bluetooth keyboard.  It was $ 24 from woot.  I like it and it has the | and
~ characters.  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005DSO5I2.  I hope this helps.
