Proof u don't need a qwerty. This is why I prefer my virtual keyboard to a physical keyboard.

People are different. Some want/need a qwerty some, like you, prefer a virtual keyboard. I think companies should offer their phones with a choice of either. If the iPhone had a qwerty model, I would have purchased it about a year ago. I personally cannot stand typing on an iPhone. Offer both keyboards and you get more customers.

Do they have an Android app like this? I believe I can type about this quick on my Nexus One (think). I tried the txtspeed app but it seems to only be for phones with physicals. I can get the keyboard up by holding the menu key but it blocks 90% of the words, plus it only works in landscape.
