Re: Qwerty keyboards
In the phone space and given a large enough screen, an on-screen is just as good for bashing out texts and short mails as a miniature keyboard. It also has the advantage of not either chewing space on the phone itself or adding bulk as a slideout.
This makes sense, although those reckoning that actual keyboards (i.e. desk or laptop) are on the way out are just spouting mindless bollocks for the sake of it. When it comes to tying larger documents there's no contest. I must get an order of magnitude faster in typing rate on a real keyboard over the best I can achieve on a touchscreen.
