    Not answering for DotDotDot, but I've hated every touch keyboard I've used.

    But I'm one of those who learned to type by touch.

    well in apples defense they worked pretty hard on making touch work so I'm wondering if he is describing his general experience with Touch or apple specificlaly

    I'm a little confused about the comments indicating you can't use the iPhone one-handed. I played with a co-workers yesterday and found I instictively used it one-handed just like my Treo.

    I will say the touch pad was different, but my one-handed typing was not materially slower than with my Treo. I am slower two-handed on the iPhone than my Blackberry and Treo, but with some practice that should improve.

    Your comments are on point.

    With my itouch, I can type one handed okay- probably as well as on my treo. However, when you go two hands the touch is not even in the same league. I have been using my itouch for a while, and while I am way faster than when I first got it, it is never going be close to a hardware qwerty. Hence, the iphone will not work for me as I am a heavy email user. If I wasn't though, it might.

    I think we can put the whole touch vs. hardware keyboard argument to bed with the following conclusion (which everyone already knew anyway):

    A touch keyboard will be passable for some (with enough practice) but will never enable one to achieve the speeds of a hardware QWERTY.

    Now can we move on?

    actually my question was more did he Try apple's software. it makes a difference how good the software is with itouch. I went into an apple store today to try it out. it really is pretty good and I just started using it--no 5 day break in.

    I haven't tried the Apple software. I am using the iTouch. I do not Jailbreak the device. I found that most of the software are lack of features. The only few things I like iTouch are the browser, music, video and youtube. Even though the browser is good but a few things, like data streaming, still could not be done. For the typing part, I still prefer Treo and Centro. I do believe Apple will put more features in the future. I won't buy the version 2 at this moment.

    I prefer the Treo.

    I've used the devices for years and have tried Blackberries and Iphones and such, and I always come back to the Treo.

    I was looking at a Sprint Curve because of the GPS nav specifically, but I can't deal with adding the extra $30 a month for basically GPS. Right now I'm on the Sprint SERO plan w/ 1250 anytimes, unlimited nights (starting at 5pm) and weekends, unlimited text/data and I pay like $50/mo after taxes and everything. I think the bill that I pay every two months is $104 or something.

    So, everything else is just too expensive for me. That's why I'm so happy about the new Treo, GPS and WiFi and can be used with my current plan. AT&Ts rate plans are outrageous, and then adding the data to it makes it quite expensive just to own some phone which has no more functionality than a Treo.
