I'm using the physical keyboard more and more mainly because it lets me see the whole screen when typing up a repair ticket and also because I'm getting used to it. I use the tip of my fingers/nails to type with so the flatness does not bother me much. I've also found that the phone is much more comfortable to hold with the keyboard out when browsing the web or viewing emails.
I heart the physical keyboard! I was in santiago's the other day and some dude was on his iPhone next to me, manipulating everything off the screen...and then with a loud A** snap, I flicked out my physical keyboard to respond to an email! He looked at me with envy! The funny part was that I had ALL of my real estate to view without some cheap "virtual" keyboard cluttering it up! Why the H*** do you think I bought a droid does! MUAHAHAHAHAHAH!
