    I find that I use vertical touch screen most, but I hate it. I make a lot of typos, but its all I can do one handed. I prefer physical, then horizontal touch, then vertical touch.

    That's what I do. The physical mainly if it's a password. My experience with swipe isn't that much and I'm used to a physical keyboard (Voyager).

    Yes, but not through the Market. You'll have to get it from their site or I believe someone posted it on this forum.

    search for it here on the forums and you will find links. if you are not using swype, you are doing it WRONG.

    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.
