PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless When Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone, one of its most prominent and most controversial features was the on-screen keyboard. In as world dominated by devices with physical keyboards, it was seen as a joke, something that could never work. We know better by now, of course, but while I still prefer the physical feel and clicks of a real keyboard, a recent new endeavour of mine has made me appreciate the on-screen keyboard in a whole new way.

Hrm, you do realise that you can install the same virtual keyboards on devices with hardware keyboards, and can even use the virtual keyboards in landscape? Right?

Virtual, onscreen keyboards are not a replacement for hardware keyboards. They are supplementary, or complementary to them.
