How easy to use is the keyboard on this phone?
Keyboard preferences are such
a matter of individual taste (and what you're used to) that it's really impossible for anyone to say that one is "better" than another for anyone other than themselves.
For what it's worth, I've ended up seldom using the physical keyboard on my Droid. Two reasons: First, I'm a "portrait mode" kind of guy. I prefer to work with more vertical screen real estate than horizontal, so use landscape mode only when I have to. Second, I was surprised to find that I can enter text a whole lot faster using a next-generation soft keyboard like ShapeWriter or Swype (which I currently use) than I can with the physical keyboard and no predictive text capabilities. Another advantage to either of those two soft keyboards is that they can be used effectively with just one hand, once you get the knack of it.
But it's definitely a "YMMV" thing - someone else will reach exactly the opposite conclusions that I did.
