Google "We're happy to announce that we have acquired Quickoffice, a leader in office productivity solutions. Today, consumers, businesses and schools use Google Apps to get stuff done from anywhere, with anyone and on any device. Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we'll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite." Excellent acquisition - Quickoffice has always been a fine product, and this gives Google instant access to a wide array of native mobile office applications. Crazy nobody else ever picked these guys and girls up. Also, if Google makes Quickoffice available for free, we can enjoy yet another "Google is competing unfairly by not charging customers money for products"-whine-a-thon. That alone is worth it.

It's not all that bad, some physical keyboards are very nice for what they are. The Motorola Cliq was a turd of a phone, but it had the best keyboard I've ever used on a mobile device. I could type faster on it than anything but a real computer keyboard, and could do so for half an hour without getting fatigued or frustrated.

Some people swear by BlackBerry keyboards too. My hands are a bit big to be really comfortable on them, but compared to portrait QWERTY phones from other manufacturers they are very good.

And Thom, I believe I've seen you praise the WP7 on-screen keyboard more than once. ;)
