    I prefer vertical, horizontal touch, and then physical...i just like the feel of the "compactness" of the vertical touch...mainly with either the default keyboard or Cyril's Smart Keyboard, thats the only two keyboards I use...

    I like physical for most things, and vertical touch for quick stuff like entering a user name/password.

    I love to use swype for vertical touchscreen, and if I ever need to go horizontal I use the physical.

    To me it really all depends.

    When I am texting I like to use the physical keyboard. All other applications I like to use the vertical and horizonal soft-keyboards.

    Have anybody heard about Thickbuttons? We are working on creating new technology for text input for touchscreen phones. As you type a word, ThickButtons enlarges useful buttons by shrinking useless ones. www.thickbuttons.com

    It will be nice to hear from all of you what do you think about our idea.

    For me it really depends. For texting or terminal emulation I use the physical keyboard. For web browsing, I use the horizontal soft keyboard. I use the vertical keyboard for everything else.

    I love the physical keyboard, but sometimes when just bumping out a quick text response or something, I will use the vertical keyboard (then regret it when I actually spend more time trying to correct errors than if I'd just used the physical kb instead). I should try Swype.
