I noticed I have a tendency towards hardware keyboards on my phones (must be my tactile-happy gamer side). My girlfriend has an iPhone, and though she can type like maniac on her touchscreen, my Android 2.2 and/or keyboard confuses her. I'm currently trying to bring her back from the dark side :kaola:

What does everyone else prefer?

I've been using Blackberries for a few years now and in comparison to the previous touchscreens I've had in the past, I am loving the physical keyboard. However, I wouldn't mind a slideout keyboard as seen on droids and such though.

I missed out on the beginnings of the smart(er) phones when the blackberry was introduced years ago. My first smartphone is my Droid, and I'll never go back.

I will not, however, buy an Apple product. First, I love the hardware keyboards too much to go to a touch-screen only device. Second, I don't like someone telling me what I can and cannot do with my property. And lastly, Apple stuff is overpriced.
