iPhone lack of keyboard “issue”
the nytimes is reporting today that a lack of a mechanical keyboard (like the blackberry or treo) will leave people adjusting or just not using it.
i just did some looking and the blackberries range in price from $100-300 (which should be close to the iPhone price-point). i am partial to the blackberry QWERTY keyboard (do not really like the compressed keyboard of the perl, but could work with it if necessary).
shall see since i have not had a data-enabled phone/pda in quite a while. i do think the iPhone will take some getting used to when it comes to working with it in general and also with a “keyboard”. the use of it continues to excite me, but i may just end up falling back on the perl.
more to come when i figure things out. comments on the blackberries and experiences, let us know.
