    It's really not a big deal as far as usability for me. Ofcourse it's not a BB keyboard but it doesn't matter to me. It's a Droid and it's it's own unique piece of hardware.

    This phone is fantastic so far. I need some more time to explore it but so far EVERYTHING has been seamless. From emails to the camera to the keyboard. I'm VERY pleased...

    I like it. No issues here. Even the top row is ok. Wish it was centered but that's about it.

    I've been playing with it all day and it's and it's not too bad at all. It's not great but I don't think it's anywhere near as bad as the reviews have made it out to be. It just takes a little getting used to. Considering how seriously amazing this phone is over all, it shouldn't be a reason for anyone to not get this phone. I'm already fairly used to it... more over the on-screen touch keyboard is the best I've ever used.

    I noticed my previous LG Voyager only had 4 rows. They could have a put a full number row on top and used the bottom row for letters and the 2 empty spaces for the 'space'. I also wish they'd stick the D-pad on the other side... more like a game controller. (like the click) I don't know about everyone else and I'm not even a gamer.. but I'd just prefer that.

    i was already kinda used to the on screen keyboard because i had an iPhone before the Droid. The only problem that i have with the real keyboard is that the top row is a little too close for comfort sometimes but i can still get used to it

    I can tell you if I play with this phone anymore today my eyes are going to pop out of my head!

    I can definatly say I'm getting the hang of the keyboard, just picked my storm back up for a min and damn that thing sucks now.

    It isn't the best I've had; awkward but that could just be a matter of acclimation. On screen is =( oh well I'll go 4 stars =)

    I've been playing with it non stop and I actually really like the keyboard. The complaints about it being flat, the keys to close, or the top row being hard to get haven't really given me any issues. The only issue I kinda have with it is when you press a key it feels kinda odd. Like i'm not sure if I should press the top of a key, the center, or what. I think its just because the keys are kinda "soft". Either way I like it and the more I use it, the MORE I like it!

    As for the onscreens, I can type with this onscreen KB so much better than my iPod Touch or Storm!

    Here is what I think about the physical keyboard:

    For users moving from a phone like the LG Voyager or another phone with large buttons, especially those with independent buttons for symbols and numbers, they will not like the droid's keyboard, at least in the short run.

    People with rather large fingers may also have a little trouble.

    For my, I have skinny fingers so the keyboard works fine for me.

    The rocker on the side is really nothing to argue about in my opinion. You hear some reviewers complain that it offsets the keyboard to the left, but for me it was barely noticable and I its easy to get use to with a little more hands-on time.

    Overall I think the design of the keyboard makes it pretty good to use for writing a message to someone, but for navigation and about everything else you should totally stick to the touchscreen.

    After all, that screen is responsive and huge.

    The keyboard is fairly easy for me to use and I usually don't make too many typos. However, I really like the landscape touch keyboard because I can type faster with it and use the suggestions. I switch back and forth, so it all works for me. Using the other touch screen keyboard with one hand will take some getting used to. Been using flip phones for the past 6 years, so sending a text message definitely takes longer. I used to be a pro, lol. I'll get over it though because I love this phone.

    Like all three keyboards

    I use all three. The only thing I have to get used to on the "real" keyboard is that the top row is narrow. Some of this is due to the cover I have on it. Wish there was just a fraction of a hair more space.
