I have a My Touch phone from T Mobile and am looking to upgrade to something with an actual qwerty keyboard.  I am having difficulty developing any speed with the touchscreen style phone.  I am looking for suggestions on replacement phone.   I would appreciate your comments/suggestions.

If you can switch to Verizon, I highly recommend the Droid 2. It has both a QWERTY keyboard and a screen representation of the QWERTY keyboard. Best of both worlds.

Day after day as I try to remember, I find my forgetter working better and better.

I really wanted a physical keyboard – and the Droid that I got has one – but I find I never use it.  The onscreen keyboard really is better.  I love the autocomplete feature onscreen, when I use the physical keyboard autocomplete is not available.

Jim uses something called 'swype' which I think will become the new way we all work with little onscreen keyboards.  You keep your finger on the screen and swype across the keys to touch all letters in your word.  The Swype program can figure out what the word is.  you only lift your finger up in between words.  You can get really fast at it.  It's still in Beta right now – so it's not available for everyone.  But look for it!

I thought I wanted a physical keyboard, but with Swype, I wouldn't bother.  It comes with the newer Droids and some other handsets.
