I haven't used a phone with a physical qwerty keyboard, but they look
pretty crappy. I wrote a 700 word article using the virtual keyboard of
my 5800 and i found it quite acceptable. I touch type and i find with
practice i can type acceptably quickly on the virtual keyboard by using
the corners of the tips of my index fingers. It's got a good physical
feedback system and you can feel when you've hit a key - and you can
often also feel when you've made a typo.

That contributed to my decision to buy it. I considered the G2, but its
frequency coverage isn't much good.
