Speaking from experience, there is a certain learning curve and I  
don't think I'd write off the soft keypad just yet. It requires a  
certain learned faith in the autocorrection algorithm (and obviously a  
good such algorithm).

Regarding the Nexus One, I'd love to hear from anyone who has one and  
their impressions thereof - especially in comparison to real-world use  
of a 3G iPhone (with which I'm growing a bit bored, nearly 2 years on).
