    I actually prefer it over the virtual keyboard....

    Virtual 100% here. I tried physical but I'm too slow (maybe I haven't given myself enough time to get used to it?)

    I also attribute it to the fact that my eyes are seeing the keys & the output at the same time when using the virtual, so I can see my output as I'm typing w/ minimal effort. When using the physical, I have to keep moving my eyes between the physical keys and the screen to make sure I'm typing correctly and this slows me down considerably.

    virtual most of the time, mainly since i'm used to a 'virtual' keyboard from using the storm. pretty good with that now. physical when i need to have the full screen viewable like in web pages, or when i need to use the d pad for navigating.

    it's great to have the option!

    I use both, but probably use the physical keyboard more often. I just don't like wasting all that beautiful screen real estate with the virtual keyboard.

    I use both. I use the virtual for quick messages or quick typing activities (URLs, etc), but I use the physical for longer messages. I am not a huge fan of the dpad on the right side since I do have to reach over that for typing, but I am getting used to it. I know the keyboard has somethings that could be better, but I appreciate the trade offs that were made to keep the phone thin.

    In the same boat, have not used the physical qwerty kb at all. Too lazy to slide out and slide back when I can just start typing on the touch screen.

    At this point, I can too...but I'm wondering if it's because I used the Pearl for 2 years and got VERY adept to Suretype...I'm sure in a month, I'll be just as fast on the Droid...I looking at it as a learning curve.

    I went from a Vogue, to a Diamond to the Droid.
    So I almost never use the Hardware KB.
    But I have grown very fond of the virtual KB in landscape mode, the buttons are huge and its easy to hit the intended key
